Gary Brierley has been making functional pottery at his studio (located at Oro Station) since 1976. As a graduate of Georgian College in ceramics and glass, Gary prides himself on the unique quality of his original creations.
Gary recognizes his work through Bernard Leach’s answer to the question ‘how do people recognize good work’:
“With their bodies, with the mind action directly through the senses, taking in form texture, pattern and colour, and referring these impressions to a personal experience of use and beauty combined.”
– Bernard Leach
Brierley Pottery strives to create high quality and functional pottery in a studio setting. Crafting pottery involves rudimentary equipment (Kiln, potter’s wheel, time), leaving Gary solely responsible for the outcome, which is Gary’s pride as an artisan of 100% handcrafted goods.
Here at Brierley Pottery, we stand behind every item ever made! If you are not 100% happy with your purchase, we will gladly exchange it.
