Artist’s Statement – Biography
Vanda studied at ACAD in Calgary AB, where she recieved a BFA majoring in ceramics. After many moves she has finally settled with her family in an old farmhouse just outside the little village of Burritt’s Rapids in eastern Ontario. She has a workshop in the barn where she makes pots, and a big garden where she grows vegetables.
Her pots are expressive and gestural, influenced by forms in nature. They are creative in form but functional and comfortable to the hand.
