ABOUT SHEILA BRENCHLEY & PEACE OF EARTH POTTERY
On a property overlooking Sturgeon Lake and the surrounding woods, Peace of Earth Pottery studio provides a calm environment for the creation of stoneware pottery that is both functional and sculptural.
Sheila’s pottery is mostly thrown on the pottery wheel with stoneware clay, fired to Cone 6-7 in an electric kiln. The functional pieces are glazed with food safe, microwave safe, dishwasher safe and oven safe glazes. There are several glazes to choose and functional pieces may be available in all the colours. The sculptural pieces are a combination of thrown and/or altered or hand-built sections. and may be finished with non-food safe glazes. All sculptures are one of a kind and usually represent an idea or message that is important to the artist.
Since 1998, Sheila has been exploring this art by taking classes, working in the studio, travelling abroad to Spain, South Korea and Japan to work with potters and sharing ideas with other potters in Ontario. Every avenue brings a new light and inspiration to her work.
