Canadian potter Meira Mathison has maintained a studio, Dancerwood Pottery, in Victoria, B.C., for over 30 years. For the past 28 years she has conducted workshops in Canada, U.S.A., England and Mexico.
Meira’s work is thrown, altered, manipulated and sprigged with coloured clay impressions. She uses thick slips and a multitude of sprayed glazes to highlight the form.
Her work reflects her environment, the westcoast rainforest and her travels to the desert in Nevada. Much of her work is “contained”, a reflection of her close family ties with her daughters.
