The featured artist July at the Potters Place is Denman Island potter Shirley Phillips of Lilac Sun Pottery.
It is always a joy to see Shirley’s work — it is fresh, different, colourful and useful. Shirley has been a potter for many years and has developed a delightful selection of textured and organic forms — leaf imprints, melted beach glass, chopstick holders and pencil holders with magnets for the fridge.
No matter what she makes, it is clear that her touch is delicate and thoughtful. It will be worth your while to see her newest line of work in our gallery.
For more information, call the Potter’s Place at 250-339-1102 or come to the corner of Fifth and Cliffe in the courtyard in the cultural heart of downtown Courtenay or visit www.thepottersplace.ca. You’re welcome to like the Potters Place on Facebook.
