Alexis Templeton — Bowls and Serving Pieces with Beach Sand from Northern Bay Sands — Feast of Pottery 2022

For this collection Alexis experimented with some new serving pieces using sand from Northern Bay Sands on the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland. This sand is relatively fine although not as fine as the beach sand from Sandy Point Beach in Lawn. The various size bowls have the beach sand swirled in the porcelain clay and a mainly glazed clear except the rims which feature the drippy blue crystalline glaze.  
Alexis Templeton is a Newfoundland potter celebrated for her functional ceramic work finished in beautiful and distinctive glazes.
Inspired by the natural heritage of her home province, Alexis has developed several signature glaze styles and designs during a career of more than three decades. She draws on both her artist’s eye and her technical knowledge in her continuing exploration of how colour and form, chemistry and serendipity, can yield gorgeous ceramic pieces suitable for your table or your walls.
