We’ve been on the road for two weeks, camping from Calgary to Abbotsford, BC then taking the adventurous route up to a cabin on Desolation Sound. My regret is that the ferry timings made it nearly impossible to catch up with Sunshine Coast potters and every “Artisan Potter” sign we sped by nearly broke my heart. I did manage to get in a quick visit to <a href=”Artique in Powell River at the start of our long travel day back to Vancouver and nabbed a fab mug by local potter Darlene Calwell. The two tone celadon/turquoise glaze caught my eye and I love to sip my coffee from inspiring art pieces so this piece is a lovely addition to my kitchen.

Today, we continue the journey home after a few wine-soaked days in Kelowna. On our way east, we’ll visit the talented Doug Ganshorn of Cedar Creek Pottery in Salmon Arm, BC. His functional pieces are graceful and meticulous, and we’re looking forward to seeing his latest creations at his studio on Christison Road.

Until we get there, it’s the sights along highway 97 to keep me company:


Not bad at all!
