Shirley Carriere joined Clay Studio Three Pottery Shop in the fall of 2005. She brought with her a wealth of experience working with the general public and compassion from her years as a nurse. Her experiences in pottery started in 2000 with classes at the Saskatoon Potters Guild where her appreciation for the art took hold. She has been on the board of the Guild and spent many hours helping to further the understanding and appreciation of pottery in others.
Shirley has an attention to detail brought about by her everyday work, an asset for Clay Studio Three. She is also an accomplished fabric artist. Concentration, planning, attention and care are as evident in her quilts as in her pottery.
