Garrie Bea Joyce and Saskia Praamsma.

Saskia Praamsma says clay is her addiction and inspiration comes from all over the world, in particular from architecture and nature.  She doesn’t plan a lot of her work, it grows out of her.saskia

Saskia has worked in potteries in the Netherlands, US, Canada, Botswana and Afghanistan.  Now she manages the Almonte Potters Guild.

Garrie Bea Joyce has been an artist all of her life having formally trained in a wide range of studio practices at Mount Allison University (BFA-major in print making and sculpture).  Teaching visual art in a wide range of media/methods for 31 years also honed her abilities to think clearly and express simply the art principles she uses and explores.

Her philosophy is “If she can transfer to the viewer on an intuitive level the exhilaration she feels while creating the work, then she considers that piece a success”.
