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 experience led to employment in the production studio of Rick and Nancy Hilborn, and later, while living in the United States, to a teaching position with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Student Art Program.

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