About Pamela

Pamela’s love of dirt, aka clay, began as a child growing up in Colorado. The connection created by the vibrant red and brown colors in the geological timeline of the rock and earth that is Colorado, and the graceful and simple ceramic art forms of the indigenous peoples of that part of the world, left a profound impression on her. She feels so very blessed to have such a connection with our Earth. As a young adult, her time spent in Latin America only added to her fascination with the rich red earth and the realization that clay and the artists that know it, are and have been an integral part of ‘living’ on this earth. Whether it is an olla kept simmering over the fire sending the smell of beans and chiles wafting through the kitchen, or that special cup that’s just right for your morning coffee or tea, or perhaps a brilliant metallic vase from the raku kiln or an evocative sculptural mask needed to grace a mantel, clay is ever present in our lives. It is this diversity of expression that has led Pamela to explore so many different techniques, such as wheel throwing, slab building, and sculpting.

Upon returning from her travels in Latin America, Pamela brought her love of clay and design into her professional life as a teacher in Victoria, BC. Whether it was a regular classroom or a special needs classroom, art and especially clay, was integrated into every subject possible… Mesopotamian cuneiform tablet journals were always a favorite, as well as building their houses to scale from clay. Now retired from teaching, Pamela has been able to dedicate herself to her art. Her work has been shown at the Sooke Fine Arts Fair in Sooke BC, at the Coast Collective Art Gallery in Victoria BC, and by private collectors in Colorado and California.

Alternative Fired Vessels

RAKU: A fast-firing process that originated in Japan. Vessels for Raku are made from a clay-body with added grog [crushed fired clay] to prevent breakage due to very rapid heating & cooling. Vessels are bisque-fired then glazed and loaded into a small outdoor Raku propane fueled kiln. The pots are heated for about 1 hour or until glazes melt [1650oF / 900oC]. Potters work together to remove items from the kiln using metal tongs, and place them in fireproof bins that contain paper and sawdust – which ignites instantly. Fire consumes the oxygen within each bin, then draws oxygen from the clay & glazes – a process called post-fire reduction – creating unique glaze patterning and blackened clay. RAKU WARE IS NOT FOOD-SAFE AND MOST ARE NOT WATER TIGHT However, some pieces have been coated with Thompson’s Water Sealer and therefore, should be able to hold water. Those pieces will be indicated.
