Clay Impressions Pottery
Welcome to Clay Impressions Pottery Studio. Located near the north shore of Prince Edward Island, Clay Impressions is nestled between woods, farmland, and the amazingly picturesque maritime shore.
Ellen Burge began making pottery professionally around 1989. The transition process was an organic development as she joined the local guild of potters, then dived headlong into intensive courses at St. Lawrence College, as well as attending workshops presented by world renowned potters who visited the area. After two decades, Ellen still feels a thrill in transforming soft clay into finished pots. Creating pottery is a very real connection to nature and to art. Each time she walks outside, her eye is drawn to the beauty in nature or the architecture of buildings and Ellen is inspired to design new work with an emphasis on form and texture. Ellen believes a pot should be a joy to hold and feel, not just to be seen.
