Products by John Ikeda

In 1971, John established a studio pottery in Lethbridge, Alberta shortly after graduation from the University of Lethbridge, with a BA in Fine Arts.  Creating functional pottery and sculpture in high-fired stoneware and porcelain in his studio in 1978, he moved east and established his current studio in St. Bernardin, Ontario.

Set in a rural setting close to nature, the adventure of acquiring unfamiliar practical skills of carpentry plumbing electrical mechanics arboriculture horticulture and firewood processing is a challenge for the artist.  However, it is rewarding for the goal of self-reliance and seeking a meaningful personal integration in the creation of a life and of art.
