An economic boom, the comfortable modernism of Swedish design, and a wave of young traditionally trained potters schooled in the Leach-Hamada tradition led to the birth of the modern ceramic movement in Canada. This generation of potters took functional forms and explored them as personal expressions that made them art for everyday living.  In doing so they created forms that still are as fresh today as when they were created.  This style is seeing a rebirth today – this is a chance to see the source.
