Rebecca is a ceramic artist living in Victoria, BC, Canada, the traditional territory of the lək̓ʷəŋən People.
With a lifelong passion for art, she began working with clay in 1991. Although she holds degrees in the fields of psychology and education, she has taken numerous arts and ceramics courses through both post-secondary institutions and community arts programs. She is currently a Clay Cohort (@claycohorts) with Lisa Orr as her mentor.
Rebecca primarily uses the wheel to make her pieces, both functional and decorative. While drawn to classic thrown forms, she often incorporates handbuilding techniques to create variety and interest. She decorates her mid-fire work with bright food-safe slips and commercial underglazes, glazing them in the final firing with a crisp clear glaze.
In her current work, she strives to combine form and function into a pleasing modern yet slightly retro aesthetic. Using bold colour contrasts and elegant shapes, Rebecca creates timeless pieces that invite the user to take a moment to relax and enjoy.
