Thelma Howard has had a long and happy relationship with clay. She is well known for her hand-built forms that seem to call out to be picked up and touched. A pottery class in 1959 started Thelma’s journey in clay.
She pursued a career in adult education, and upon retirement began taking classes in the SIAST Ceramics Program. A former long time member if the Saskatchewan Potters Guild, she takes her inspiration from nature. The harmony of pottery and nature is reflected in her BBQ fired pieces..
She is presently limited in the number of pieces she can produce due to her firing method which is limited to firing only in the summertime. Her pots grace the decor of many homes not only in Saskatchewan,but around the world.
