New work from Martha Millard

Check out the amazing new work from Martha.  We love all the fresh new colours.

My pottery is constantly changing and evolving, most is functional although some pieces are purely whimsical. My functional forms are simple with subtle alterations, a little texturing and glazes that blend together seamlessly, pleasing both to the eye and the hand. It is designed to be used and enjoyed daily.  Because each piece is made by hand, no two are identical. This is due to the nature of the clay, the glaze and me leaving signs of the creative process like throwing lines and marks from tools or my fingers.

There is something special about things made of clay.  Each piece unique and imperfect, very much like our selves.

As someone arranges flowers in a vase, arranges food on a platter or wraps their hands around a warm coffee mug, I like to think that I have touched them in some way.

Getting to know… Martha Millard


What time of day are you most productive?

I prefer afternoons to other parts of the day. My other chores are up to date and I can focus on my art. Many days I lose track of time and work well into the evening.


What new items are you currently working?

Colanders, garlic pots and bird feeders. I recently purchased a clay slab roller – a fun new device – and am looking forward to creating new platters and other functional items.


Dream vacation? Where would you like to go and why.

We are heading to Iceland and Scotland in the fall. Both countries offer unique history, geographies, people and art.


What music do you listen to when you are working?

I am fan of 70’s music as well as Blue Rodeo, Jimmy Buffett, Eric Clapton , Jackson Browne and James Taylor. IMG_3254_2 IMG_3253_3

Favourite colour?

Green – the basis for much of my glaze works


I love to read, work in my gardens , kayak and play hockey.
