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 exhibition of new work in our lobby by members of Inspirations Studio, a unique low-barrier ceramics program in Toronto for women and gender diverse people who have experienced marginalization.
Our Joy of Ceramics fundraiser returns on October 27, featuring a presentation by Sarah Milroy, Chief Curator at the McMichael Gallery, who will talk about a work by Shary Boyle, including its many meanings and her decision to donate it. This event sells out every year!
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.
Learn the art of the potter’s wheel! Students will take inspirations from wheel-thrown works in the Museum's collections to create their own functional and sculptural pieces with earthenware clay and glazes.
