Lindsay Gravelle: Jar with Lid titled Scattered, awarded the Kris Magidsohn Toronto Potters Student Award


Lindsay’s background in drawing and painting has influenced her studio ceramic practice by exploring materials, colours and textures.  Working in experimental forms, she throws the jar and assembles the sculptural nob using off cuts and castaways from making and trimming.  Hand crafted each component will slightly vary in colour, pattern, size and weight.  Retail Feature: Toronto Potters Biennial Exhibition titled FLUX Scattered 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).  Recipient of the Kris Magidsohn Toronto Potters Student Award:  This award was set up in honour of Kris Magidsohn, a long-time supporter of the ceramic community in Toronto. She was a member of Toronto Potters, where she served as President from 1998-2000, a member of the Potters Studio, a volunteer for the Gardiner Museum Shop, and a member of both FUSION: The Ontario Clay and Glass Association and N.C.E.C.A. The National Conference on Education for the Ceramic Arts.  Her private pottery collection consisted of works she collected locally, from the FUSION conferences and from the very popular NCECA Mug Sales an annual international fundraising event where ordinary potters had access to the work of the internationally famous potters.  With Kris’ passing  in 2015, her daughter donated Kris’s extensive pottery collection to the Toronto Potters live auction. Proceeds were used to set up an award in her honour. Chosen by jurors Susan Low-Beer and Denis Longchamps before the pandemic, the recipient for the 21st Biennial was a student at the time, but has since found meaningful work with Inspirations Studio and also as the technician in Toronto Potters Studio.
