  • Welcome to Pottery by Heather in Edmonton’s Countryside. Experience a working pottery studio surrounded by picturesque gardens just 20 minutes north of Edmonton, Alberta.

    Witness the transformation of wet clay into unique, finished pieces emerging from the kiln. Browse the shelves filled with durable, beautiful porcelain dishes: place settings, serving dishes, tea sets and more. Find that special mug you just can’t live without. Heather’s pottery is microwave, oven & dishwasher safe.

    The studio has ready-to-buy work or custom designed pieces can be ordered.

    Heather creates a diverse Celtic line that is sold at the studio and also at the Calgary and Canmore Highland Games. Commissioned art pieces are also available for presentation pieces or special gifts. Getting married… our wedding registry is an option.

    Like to know more about behind the scenes? Studio tours are offered for any age. Please call ahead to arrange a visiting time and for costs. Pottery by Heather hosts two Work of Our Hands sales a year. Many other local artisans join Heather for this semi-annual event.

    Visit our web site for dates and more information. You are welcome to come and wander the gardens, as they are a blaze of color throughout the growing season. We look forward to meeting you. Open year-round.

    Just 20 minutes north of Edmonton. Travel highway 28 north to Bon Accord, turn in at the Husky gas station and we are just a half a block off the highway in a residential area. By appointment please.

    WHAT’S NEW!

    The apples are all in full bloom….the Ladyslipper orchids have started to open up….Mr and Mrs House Wren are back and building a nest!  Yup…spring is here and we are working our way towards summer.

     

    Come for a drive and a visit to the studio.  Watch us work as we prepare for upcoming shows, wander the gardens to see what is new in bloom and have a visit with the chickens!  While you are in Bon Accord you can grab a coffee at Liquid Therapy, indulge in Foothills Creamery ice cream at Bon Accord Videos or wander out to Prairie Gardens for a bite of lunch and a look around the green houses.  Is a great way to spend a warm and sunny day!
