Pam and Tim make all the pottery in their studio from a local earthenware clay. Their work is internationally recognized for their unique slip decoration. This demanding technique creates a very distinctive ware with an incredible depth to its surface.
A Little Taster
Pam Birdsall & Tim Worthington
In 1977, shortly after graduating from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, we set up our studio on Main Street in the beautiful seaside town of Mahone Bay. It proved to be a wonderful location, providing good sales and constant customer feedback.
We made a wide variety of both functional and decorative pottery using clay from a local brick factory. We soon began to specialize in commemorative plates that marked the significant events in people's lives.
After 40 years of running the gallery shop and studio, we thought it was time for a change in direction. We had amassed a great customer base, so simply relocating our studio and selling online seemed like the natural next step.
In 2018, we sold our building and moved our studio to the Mahone Bay Community Centre. This newfound ability to just come to the studio and focus on our work has been both creatively and professionally rejuvenating.
We hope you will continue to follow our creative journey as we regularly add new pieces and features to the website.
