Meet the Artist

Célia in her Toronto studio

My passion for the art of ceramics ignited when I was travelling through the Brazilian northeast in the late 1970’s. I came upon a small pottery village on the shores of the São Francisco river where I first saw kick wheels, and pots drying in the sun.

Captivated by the possibilities of the clay I have since embarked on a journey of learning, discovery, and creation.
