Kerry Mclaren

A deep love of movement and the enchanting world of fantasy inspire ceramic artist Kerry McLaren. From bustiers to table ware Kerry creates pieces that are both playful and practical.
Most of Kerry’s pieces are hand built from large slabs of clay utilizing texture and embellishing techniques. Kerry often infuses personal history and a touch of whimsy by imprinting her grandmother’s dollies and her favorite finds into the raw clay. Leaves, tree bark and onion sacks all find their way into Kerry’s charming and vibrant pieces.

More of Kerry’s work can be viewed on her website or in her Maple Ridge Studio.
