Peter Flanagan – Pottery

My dream came true- to make pots for a living. Not just any old pots, but the pots I want to make. Collectors, galleries, and ships have supported and encouraged my endeavors, for which I am eternally grateful. The studio where I work is situated in the heart of the Okanagan valley in Peachland. In addition to thrown work, I also design tableware for both pressed and slip cast production. Happily as one can see my pots are not built in a vacuum but the richness of a supportive environment of family, friends and peers.

The Glass Girls

Laura is originally from Salt Spring Island in B.C. She and her musician/racecar enthusiast husband eventually found their way to Peachland and have not looked back since.  Peachland is where they were meant to be. Tracey is from Sicamous in B.C., moved to Peachland as a young woman, then married a lifelong native of Peachland and decided she was home. The saying “you never really know where you are going until you get there” certainly applies to this artistic collaboration. Five years after Laura asked Tracey what she was building, who would ever have imagined a whole new chapter would open in their lives and they would be on a path that felt so completely meant to be!
