Laurie Davis will set the Potters’ Place on fire. Wait until you see what she’s been smoking!

The Potter’s Place in Courtenay offers Laurie Davis as featured artist for November.

Laurie is one of those potters that create what we call visual-scapes with her pottery.

She used a variety of firing methods including raku, which is specific ceramic firing process that uses both fire and smoke to create unique patterns and designs. She creates functional and decorative work, which will make wonderful additions to any home décor.

Laurie has recently graduated from North Island College in fine arts program and we are thrilled that she represents both the Potters’ Place and NIC so beautifully.

Be it a teapot, a bowl, or a vase — Laurie makes beautiful representations of all of these. You can see an extended body of her work throughout this month of November at the Potters’ Place.

The artist will be in the gallery Nov. 13 and 27 from 10 to 5 p.m.

The Potter’s Place is at 180B Fifth St. on the corner of Fifth and Cliffe in the Courtyard, in the cultural heart of downtown Courtenay. It’s open Mondays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Parking is available at the rear of the building.
