Craig Rogers-Guest Artist 2018

Craig enjoys making pots for use with food.  He was an early Fired Up! participant, and continued to make pots intermittently while working in fine dining, and teaching culinary arts at Vancouver Island University.  Since retiring from cooking, he has returned to working in clay.

Over the past few years,  Craig and his wife Louise Card have built a home and studio in Fanny Bay.

They are both very pleased to be part of Fired Up! 2018.

Susan Delatour- Guest Artist 2018

Susan LePoidevin

Susan is known for her unique primitive fired sculptures  Recently she has been working on a series in clay entitled, “Crossing Bridges”.

Using the arch form as a constant in each of my pieces of art in this series creates a challenge as well as providing a focal point to enhance an idea or imagery.

A closer look at Vin’s artwork will reveal that it contains the spirit of an urban environ yet is fused with a profound respect for nature and the logic and mystery in materials. Any single work could reflect various energies like that of a folk festival, a hip-hop show, drag pageant, cartoon realities, dreamscapes, a political rally, or a silent retreat. His work derives colour, shape and texture from walks in the downtown east side as much as it does from contemplative hikes into the forest with his dog.

Vin Arora is a Vancouver based artist working and teaching in ceramics, exploring material as means of social cohesion and community building as well as a means of inward reflection. Vin attended the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design (Now ECU) starting in ’96 and has worked in clay in Vancouver ever since. Vin has worked with many great teachers, artists and potters in Vancouver and also takes influence from travels in India and Britain.
