Welcome to Bussard Grove Pottery, Handcrafted Pottery, Classes, Gallery and Studio tours

What I Do

Play in the Mud 

Functional Pottery

Gallery on site, open by appointment I think of my work as evolution.  The subtle nuances of surface and form are always where i can get completely lost in a line, a shadow or texture. Functional pottery is like home, the hearth, family, getting together, sharing moments and love.


Sculpture is an expression.  My way of expressing emotions, creating moments or commenting on the world around me.  Sometimes i use a functional object sometimes i wander over to the abstract.

Pottery Classes

The studio is well equiped with 4 wheels, slab roller, extruder, working tables, damp cabinets and never enough storage.  I seasonally teach throwing and handbuilding classes

forever the apprentice to the craft

My work can be found in numerous private collections nationally and internationally, most notably is part of the permanent collection at the Sanbao Ceramic Arts Institute Museum in Jingdezhen, China.  BFA Alberta College of Art and Design Ceramic Arts – Sheridan College of Art and Design,Ontario. When a skill is something you learn playing as a child, you just assume everyone knows all that “stuff”.

Materials and Tools

Most of a potters materials are from the earth.  Clay, and Minerals. I use semi porcelain stoneware for functional pots, and my own clay recipies for special effects through firing and texture for scuptural and decorative pieces.
