Hansen featured artist at Potters Place

Kay is an original member of the Potters Place when it was only a glimmer in a number of Valley potters’ eyes. 

The Potters Place has Kay Hansen as the featured artist for April.

As with all things spring, Kay’s work is delightful and full of life.

Kay is an original member of the Potters Place when it was only a glimmer in a number of Valley potters’ eyes.

Through her dedication and insights, she along with a handful of other Valley potters help to create what is now a collective of wonderful artists who work in clay.

This is a collective that now over 20 years old.

The Potters Place has had a home in several places, including Cumberland, and now here  in downtown Courtenay at the corner of Fifth and Cliffe.

Kay has been an active member of the gallery from its inception.

Kay has lived on a farm in the Comox Valley since 1968.

“Just one night school class in the early ’70s started my obsession with clay and I’ve been enjoying it ever since.”

Kay’s first love is functional pottery but also loves the excitement of raku.

Come see Kay’s wonderful works of functional and decorative pottery as featured artist throughout the month of April at the Potters Place at the corner of Fifth and Cliffe at the Potters Courtyard, in the cultural heart of Downtown Courtenay.

It’s open Mondays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Like them on Facebook — the Potters Place Gallery and Shop.
