Pine Tree Potters' Guild Members' Gallery

Artist: Jillian Lemmond

Artist Biography

Jillian was introduced to clay in a grade 9 art class and followed that up with a March break course in Elliot Lake. Totally hooked on clay, she took several evening wheel classes at Dundas Valley School of Art where clay became a passion.

Five years of apprenticeship followed with Matik Pottery in Greensville and with Gary Moxam's Hope Pottery in Peterborough, throwing in both stoneware and porcelain and firing in both oxidation and cone 10 reduction. Demonstrating in the arts and crafts building at the C.N.E. each summer during the exhibition was an exciting part of learning the skills. She worked out of her own studio, Homestead Pottery, for several years until she took a break while raising a family.

Jillian is now happily playing with clay full time at the Pine Tree Potters' Guild in Aurora Ontario.
