Many fishes!!!!!!

So the blog will be devoted to a more informational site and discussion regarding my methods and why the heck I do this work!
Fish ~ hmmm, hubby loves them.  Loves fishing for them and consuming them.  I use to love fishing, but hardly find the time or the patience these days.  That's unfortunate because I could use a down time break often in my increasingly busy weeks....

Raku Inukshuk Start at $50~ and up...

The Inukshuk is a creation of the Inuit who have throughout their history used these stone monuments as landmarks to guide them across the barren Canadian Arctic tundra Inukshuk loosely translated means "something which acts for or performs the function of a human" and these landmarks would have been a welcome and hopeful sight to a traveler on the desolate Arctic landscape.
Whether signaling a route for safe travel or pointing the way to a fishing spot, these rugged stone figures have now come to symbolize the best in human nature – collaboration and team work which helps to guide a fellow traveler safely on a successful journey. Admiration and respect for this Inuit creation has manifest itself in southern Canada where an Inukshuk is just as likely to be found gracing an urban garden as built high on rock embankments along the wilderness of Canadian highways. The Inukshuk has captured the imagination of people worldwide and the fascination for these stone monuments continues to grow. The Inukshuk provokes a sense that we are not alone , that someone has gone before us and has left a hopeful and reassuring beacon to guide us to a successful conclusion to our journey.


My name is Colette and I am a potter living just east of the village of Metcalfe, Ontario. I make functional pottery which is both microwave and dishwasher safe and can even be heated in the oven. My passion is to create sculptural works and decorative art pieces which are mainly finished in a method called Raku. More about Raku later.
I live on 5 wooded wonderful acres. Just enough to recharge my batteries.
I have 2 kids, 2 dogs, 5 cats, and after the very recent tragic loss of my beautiful horse Irish, 1 miniature horse. Oh and no money! Goes directly to the orphans listed.
I also have the most understanding, indulgent husband (I only have 1 of these) on the planet.
He doesn't completely understand me yet, but he's trying!
