Big Hill Pottery – Functional pottery that inspires and delights
Working with new clay, new glazes and a rebuilt kiln - and Linda's 25+ years of experience/ cumulative inspiration - it's a ball!
Bright & spirited porcelain mugs, teapots, bowls, serving pieces and much more are made with precision & attention to detail.
Linda Wright, originally from Edinburgh, Scotland, has been a potter for almost 25 years. Since graduating from Sheridan School of Craft and Design, Ontario, in 1985, she has been committed to creating functional pottery that inspires and delights her customers.
Now, here on Cape Breton Island, Linda is once again recreating herself and her work. With the amazing talent and hard work of her partner Terry Henderson, the barn that used to house the goats and horses, is now a beautiful, light filled studio. New glazes are being explored and there is great excitement when it is time to open the kiln.
