Hand-crafted ceramics to brighten the everyday

Ramona creates timeless modern-rustic pieces with a focus on design and utility.  From a hand-made mug for morning coffee, to a lamp to curl up under, each object is intentionally made to imbue life’s moments with mindfulness.

Forms in nature have served as inspiration, a point from which to let my imagination roam. I have always felt that despite huge advances in science and technology, there is still much about the world that remains a mystery… unknown and undiscovered, something intrinsic to our being, ephemeral and beautiful. I revel in the possibilities of flora and fauna undiscovered, yet to be discovered or yet to evolve. The strangeness and perfection of some of nature’s solutions such as protective shells, spines and spikes, the specifics of pollination, migration, tentacles and organs, capture my imagination with their spectacle of complexity.

I have always been a very interdisciplinary artist, using whatever medium I feel is most appropriate for me. Although in the past I tried to curb this and originally tried to focus on one medium only, I have found that this is very limiting for me as I feel equally comfortable working with clay or paint and enjoy the different possibilities each provides.

Elementerra Art Studio

Nested in the woods, in Merville BC, just north of Courtenay and old horse barn converted to art studio serves as a sanctuary to create.  Being immersed in the trees, my art practice draws inspiration from the land, the flora & fauna and the seasonal transitions just outside the door.  I keep a fluctuating selection of pottery in stock in my home studio.  Get in touch if you'd like to come for a visit!
