Elise, Bernard, Jessica and Crystal are all graduates of the University of Manitoba Ceramics program and have taught ceramic classes at a variety of venues including the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Art City and Medalta.  Jessica, Bernard and Crystal work out of their studios at 618 Arlington while Elise does her ‘potting’ out of The Edge Clay Centre.   All believe in community, taking time to watch the sun set and gettin’ their hands muddy!
