Thunder Bay Potters Guild

Welcome to the Thunder Bay Potters’ Guild

Great Thunder Bay (and area!) Potters – Great Thunder Bay Pottery

That mug in your hand. What draws you to it? Is it the colour? The shape? The weight in your palm? Does it make you feel happy when you drink from it? The Thunder Bay Potters’ Guild is full of people who think about such things every day.

Pottery is one of those rare artforms that is both visual and tactile, that we can look at and touch. We can appreciate the beauty and the function of any particular piece whether it’s a cup, a bowl, a pot, a plate, or any other pottery piece that makes our lives easier and more beautiful.

We are a collective of artists from Thunder Bay and across Northwestern Ontario who inspire and encourage each other. Although we come together for support, encouragement, and to learn, our artwork is quite varied as you’ll see in our Guild Gallery.

You can also meet our members on our Facebook Page.
