While I was researching something completely different, I came across Industry Canada and the NAICS code for pottery and ceramics, part of a system of categorizing industries. This led me to the Canadian Industry Statistics (CIS) site. Through it, I came across a listing of Canadian pottery studios and I am featuring them in this post, save six that didn’t list websites. (I’ll update this list later, after I’ve googled those potteries.) It was exciting to see a list of Canadian potteries and I was enchanted by the names. Most of them are located ‘somewheres else’ and many are in the Maritimes. Of course, there are many more potteries in Canada than those represented on the list. Spread the word because CIS accepts applications to be added to the list! I’m surprised more studios aren’t on it, but who would have thought on a government website? Free advertising! Take a look and click through to their websites. A huge range of styles and techniques is represented, in addition to the purposes for which the products are made. If you live in the U.S., you may be interested in what people above the 49th parallel are making and, if you’re Canadian, you’ll enjoy seeing what’s happening. For everyone else, enjoy this lovely sampling of North American artistry.
