CANADIAN POTTERY ARTISTS
Studio 648 Pottery
Canadian pottery artist, Alicia, is the owner behind local Ontario business, Studio 648 Pottery. Her current pottery collection consists of handmade wheel thrown mugs. What we love most about her pottery are the glaze colours she uses. Some glazes are neutral while others are turquoise and bright blue like the mug shown below. It’s our absolute favourite!
Thistlewood Pottery is a local Manitoba shop based in Whitemouth. Cheryl, the owner of Thistlewood Pottery, found pottery later in life but once she did, she never looked back. Her pottery designs are gorgeous in many different colours and finishes such as matte black, glossy teal or speckled white. We’ve never seen the matte black glaze before and really like the unique modern look it gives. With mugs, wine cups, pottery spoons, serving dishes, mugs and more you can fill your cupboards with Cheryl’s beautiful Canadian pottery. She even offers the option to customize many of her pottery creations which make them a great housewarming, anniversary or wedding gift.
LN Pottery In Canada
‘Calming’ is one word we use to describe the Canadian pottery made by Lydia Nicholson. If you click to see her entire collection, you’ll know what we mean. Each piece is made with intention and the glazes used provoke a calming vibe. She even makes candles that come in a handmade pottery vessel.

Tim Alexander is the Canadian pottery artist behind Island Pottery, a local Thunder Bay shop. We own lots of pottery pieces by Tim including the two mugs you see below. We absolutely love the detail of these mugs and how they feel in our hands. Tim operates his pottery studio in Thunder Bay for part of the year and then works from his studio in Rossport, ON on Nicol Island (hence the name – Island Pottery) from May to October. You’re welcome to visit his pottery studio and shop in person if you’re in Rossport, ON along Lake Superior.
These Canadian pottery studios are definitely some of my top picks when it comes to pottery in Canada. I’ll continue to update this list as my Canadian pottery collection grows. Your support of these Canadian shops means so much. Thank you for shopping local.
