The Gardiner Museum is open seven days a week! Explore our permanent collection, discover special exhibitions, and get hands-on with clay in our studios. We look forward to welcoming you.
Discover an installation of works by American artist Sharif Bey on now in our lobby. Bey's practice is influenced by African and Afro-diasporic aesthetic traditions, as well as ancient Andean ceramics and contemporary popular culture.
Summer will be here before you know it! Don't wait to sign up for the Gardiner's popular summer camps. New this year, all our week-long sessions are full-day multimedia camps, so kids can draw, paint, sculpt, and more.
Every object in our permanent collection can be accessed through our eMuseum portal. Learn about individual collecting areas, like Italian Maiolica or Modern and Contemporary Ceramics, or search the full collection by keyword. You'll be amazed by what you discover!
Help us continue to offer innovative and engaging exhibitions, programs, and community projects in person and online, as well as plan for the future. Please consider making a donation today.
Annika is a Toronto-based artist specializing in wheel-thrown and slip-cast ceramics. Her interest in clay began while she was studying Textile Design in Toronto, at the Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCADU). Since graduating in 2013 with a Bachelor of Material Art and Design, she has been focusing solely on clay as her medium.
Function plays a large role in Annika’s work; she enjoys making items that combine surface design and ergonomic details to create useful objects to be admired. She is currently exploring ways to incorporate colour and pattern into her work using mason stains to create a marbled effect. As well, she is drawn to a speckled stoneware clay body that offers an organic pattern and provides a grip for the hand where the clay is left exposed. All of her work is fired to cone 6 using porcelain casting slip, and stoneware clay bodies.
