129 Bow Meadows Crescent, Canmore, AB T1W 2W8
Priscilla produces one-of-a-kind ceramic work using both electric and sawdust kilns, and balances her work between functional pottery and decorative sawdust work. The natural world is her continuous source of inspiration with vines, leaves and flowers often incorporated into her work. Since moving to Canmore, the process of sawdust firing has captured her attention and imagination. She is continually intrigued by the amazing variety and unpredictable results in both surface patterns and colours. The surfaces of her vessels often resemble lichen, rock or the night sky, always with an organic look, and without the use of glaze. Priscilla has been an art educator since graduating from University, having taught in Calgary, Yellowknife, and Canmore’s artsPlace. Priscilla has also been an archaeological draftsperson and illustrator in remote wilderness areas including Sudan, the Mackenzie River Valley and the Thelon Game Sanctuary of the Northwest Territories. Her work is available at Elevation Gallery in Canmore. Commission work is welcome and individual instruction available.

Internship positions at the Works Art and Design Festival, Medalta Potteries and the Nickel Galleries have contributed to her practice of curating, gallery preparation and collections management.

Stampede Artist Ranch Project
Each year the Stampede funds a small group of selected contemporary artists to spend a weekend in Longview to experience the western way of life on an authentic working ranch. The artists then create works of art reflecting on ranch life through the expression of their own contemporary styles. The impact of the experience can be quite magical. The completed bodies of work from each of the artists are shown together at the Western Showcase Exhibit in the Artist Ranch Booth throughout the Stampede. We are looking for submissions from contemporary artists for our 2017 retreat which will take place September of 2017.
