I have been playing with pinch pots off and on throughout my career. When I moved to Vancouver Island, I was entranced by these cute little guys who are abundant in my neighbourhood. I couldn’t resist making them. The California Quail are recognized by their distinctive plume that droops over their forehead. They are a highly […]

One of the reasons I have been a potter for so many years is because the clay never ceases to challenge me.

The winds of change are in the air! Do you feel it? When these gusts start to arise, we awaken to the anticipation of what’s to come. So it is at Turning Point Arts. It all began, as it often does, in the bluster of winter. In January of 2011 we re-designed The Pottery Store […]

For those of you who have been a fan of Pottery by Peggy for a long time, you will be well aware of how badly an upgrade to my website was needed. Although I have kept important information current, the photos were years out of date.  But that’s all changed, thanks to my wonderful and […]
