My name is Bethany Scott of Rock Paper Poison and I make ceramic tableware. I attended Emily Carr University of Art and Design for painting but in my second year I took my first ceramics course and fell in love with clay. It is the constant room for exploration that interests me most about ceramics. I work out of my home studio in Orillia Ontario. I research my clay and designs and create many of my own glazes so that each tableware set I produce is new and fresh for the season. Being a lover of natural materials I try to let as much of the innate qualities of the clay shine through the work. I want my work to find its way into people’s homes and lives, connecting them with the beauty and joy of everyday objects. As a producer of objects, I am very conscious of the effects my work has on the environment. I use nontoxic and food safe glazes on my work. Knowing that what I create is durable and will be around for a long time I do not fire work unless I am satisfied that it is the best possible quality that I can produce.
