Horus Eye Pottery
Our name comes from Horus the Egyptian god of the sky, son of Isis and Osiris. In mythology, Horus was a defender of order and his eye was considered an amulet of protection. As a child I would often suffer from nightmares and to combat this, my Mother would draw a Horus Eye on my window almost every night. I began using this symbol as my maker’s mark in art class in high school, and continue to do so to this day.
About the Artist
I have been an active potter for about 15 years, but only recently took the plunge into working full-time in my tiny studio. In 2016, I participated in the Fusion Mentorship program under Michelle Mendlowitz, which was a wonderful experience. In 2018, I had an amazing opportunity to travel to Icheon, Korea with five members of the Kawartha Potters Guild as well as members of other Guilds from London and Hamilton, to learn techniques from Korean pottery masters. Also in the same year, I was very happy to be accepted into the KPG Juried show at the Peterborough Art Gallery and was honoured to win the Design Award from Angelo di Petta.
