Artist Statement - Heather Smit
Heather is a Toronto area ceramic artist. She is interested in the development of relationship created by placement and repetition, and the use of functional ceramics to create sculptural works. Her current body of work brings focus to form, function and simplicity of the utilitarian object.
The Mississauga Potters’ Guild, founded in 1978, is a non-profit volunteer organization. The Guild is run by members who have a passion for working in clay. Our members range from hobby to professional potters. The Guild has three levels of membership: General, Studio and Resident Artists. The members work together to advance the art and craft of pottery, maintain a studio with 24/7 access, offer classes and workshops for members and non-members, holds monthly meeting for members and participates in a variety of activities to showcase the work of members including exhibitions and sales. The Guild participates in community events such as Culture Days and Mississauga Waterfront Festival throughout the year. The studio is opened to the community Sunday afternoons so that anyone interested can come and experience working with clay.
