          Decorative and Functional Works by
          Jane Murray-Smith


          Welcome to Dragonfly Pottery!

          Like so many people who work with clay, it is the essential tactile experience, the very realness of molding clay, either by hand or on the wheel that was the initial draw for me.

          My inspiration for handbuilding comes from the natural world.?One of the very first?raku tiles?I carved is of a woman transforming into a tree.?I handbuild?raku seals, otters, rabbits,?and when asked, make?pet portraits of raku dogs and cats?as?figurines?or as part of?memorial urns?or?stoneware dog treat jars.

          Many?horsehair and feather vases, lamps, jars and baskets?include the feather imprints of our Canada goose, and other mystery feathers that I find on our walks.

          I equally love to throw functional work that is not only beautiful and elegant to see, but friendly to hold and use daily as your favourite?mug, jug, teapot?or?bowl. Each piece has to look and feel exactly right.


          In 2002?I become a full time potter and joined a group of professional potters, and in 2003 opened our gallery,?Pyromania Pottery?in?Coombs BC.


          I am inspired on a daily basis by my fellow artist and husband Christopher M. Smith of?예스카지노 가입쿠폰, with whom I share a home as well as our?Phoenix Gallery of Glass and Ceramic Art?in?Lantzville BC
