Gwen Friedman: Porcelain Bowl, awarded the Craft Ontario Award



Gwen’s inspiration comes from her upbringing in Zimbabwe appreciating earthy, African vessels designed for daily use. The bowl is decorated with fluid simplicity, using a soft palette of coloured clays and slips.  The exterior is left unglazed to evoke the tactile texture of the natural clay and the interior is glazed for food and liquid use.  Hand crafted each piece will slightly vary in colour, pattern, size and weight.  Retail Feature: Toronto Potters Biennial Exhibition titled FLUX Porcelain bowl was juried by Denis Longchamps (Executive Director and Chief Curator of The Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery) and Susan Low-Beer (Award Winning Ceramic Artist).  Awarded the Craft Ontario Award: presented to Gwen Friedman for herPorcelain Vase and Bowl”

About The Artist

Gwen Friedman

Gwen Friedman was raised in Zimbabwe in southern Africa and developed an early appreciation for earthy, African vessels, designed for daily use. Trained at the Kim Sacks School of Ceramics in Johannesburg, South Africa, this aesthetic strongly influences her work, expressed through subtle, natural hues, and surfaces of unglazed ‘naked’ clay. Continuing her studies through ceramics courses in Toronto, Friedman works from her downtown Toronto studio producing minimalist ceramic art that balances form and function.
