Pottery pizzaz at Potters Place

Featured artist Charlotte Schaufelbuhl and special guest artist Jeff Brett are at the Potters Place this month.

The Potters Place is putting on some Pottery Pizzaz this month with  featured artist Charlotte Schaufelbuhl and special guest artist Jeff Brett.

He thinks of himself as a multi-disciplinary artist exploring a variety of art mediums including ceramics, photography, video and sculpture — jumping from one to another and sometimes combining them.

His art practice has focused in the past few years primarily on making functional pottery.

“I make pots for my family and I, pots that we love to hold, fill with food or drink and share with friends. Each piece is a simple, personal statement that I believe exhibits something about who I am as the maker. I choose to focus on a few basic forms — tumblers, mugs, plates and bowls. I invite you to hold each piece and discover a connection for yourself.”

Jeff’s pots are to be filled with your favourite food or drink, used and enjoyed.

“Where I live and what I do in my work both have a profound influence on the art I create.”

Schaufelbuhl’s work is strongly influenced by her folk art studies and has a European flavour.

She is constantly testing new ground. She prefers to sacrifice rigid design and controlled firings for the erratic and surprising results that reduction gas firings offer. Her work is unique and a treasured find for even the eclectic collector.

Charlotte has built her own kiln and has her studio in Black Creek.

She also belongs to the Comox Valley Potters and continues to frequent workshops with guest artists.

Come and meet these wonderful artists and enjoy some holiday refreshments. Jeff will be in the gallery from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and

Charlotte will be in the gallery from 1 to 5 p.m.

The Potter’s Place is at 180B Fifth St. on the corner of Fifth and Cliffe in the Courtyard in 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.
