Ottawa Guild of Potters members have embarked on a huge project, an outdoor art installation to mark Canada's 150th which will be displayed outdoors at the Museum of Nature June thru August, 2017. 9,000 pieces will be created out of white porcelain clay; one third are feathers representing Canada's indigenous peoples, one third roses representing the British and one third fleur de lys representing the French. Lots of workshops are being held in local pottery studios and schools to make these vast quantities.
This mini installation at the recent Ottawa Guild of Potters Christmas Sale promoted the project and highlighted what will be an incredible visual and visceral effect.
