MY NAME IS DUNCAN
I am a father, a husband, a potter, a teacher. Living in the quaint town of Dundas, Ontario. My daily family life and the hectic pace of small children shapes my time in the studio. The time I invest in my family, friends and teaching is important to me. This giving of myself carries over into my work. My forms are considered. My surfaces are layered with history and movement. But above all else function stands front and center.
I majored in Ceramics at Sheridan College School of Crafts and Design, after which I entered a 6 year apprenticeship with Dundas potter Scott Barnim. This profound grounding in thrown and highly decorated ceramics allowed me to confidently open my own studio. With local, national and international exhibitions occurring, I have been sought to teach classes and workshops across Ontario. I am currently an adjunct professor and technician at Mohawk College.
