Products by Hana Balaban-Pommier

Hana Balaban-Pommier immigrated to Canada 30 years ago from her native Czechoslovakia and took her first ceramics course at Waterloo Potters’ Workshop. This led to employment in the production studio of Rick and Nancy Hilborn, and later, to a teaching position with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Student Art Program.

After returning to Canada, Hana settled in Toronto and returned to her studio practice, enhancing her skills through various workshops and courses, including a mentorship program with Angelo di Petta. Subsequently, she enrolled in Sheridan College’s Ceramics Program, graduating in 2014. In 2016, she completed a residency in Kecskemet, Hungary. Hana is a recipient of a 2014 Craft Ontario Award.
