Welcome to Dew Heart Pottery
Dewy Spizzirri, Ceramic Artist
In the fall of 2004 I started taking pottery classes at Lambton College and realized when I’m playing in clay I feel one with the earth. And I have found a hobby. During my travels, living in Maui, Hawaii, and visiting Romania and Germany my work has begun to have European influence in the shapes. While I was in Europe I visited many museums and was drawn in by the 1600’s to 1800’s stoneware pottery. The European influence is also inspired by the freedom of modern shapes making my pieces distinctly unique.
I continue to take courses and workshops throughout Ontario and the U.S. to broaden my knowledge and inspiration, which allows me to produce and distribute giftware for others to enjoy.
I enjoy making alternative pieces as well as functional pieces at my studio, which is a short walk from Lake Huron in Sarnia, Ontario. My studio is located on a one-acre property allowing me to overlook the fruits of my labour in my gardens and small woods. Alternative firing allows me to experiment with different fibers and matter such as salt and horsehair. I take pleasure in watching the different reactions and the beauty of each piece’s individuality coming through. I’ve always thought alternative firing was like candy to the eyes.
