1 OF A KIND TOP 5: Martine Buczkowski Potiere

Pottery by Martine Buczkowski at the One of a Kind Show Toronto.

Pottery that packs a punch.

Pottery at artisan shows tends to wash up a sea of soft blues, greens and grays – an ocean of calming colours that I admit I love and have lots of because naturally I am soothed by the watery tones. But then there is Martine’s pottery. Colour explodes on her work like skittles, rainbows, and crayons. Her pottery is not soothing -it’s revitalizing.

Food must taste great when lifting it off a plate infused with Martine’s choice of hues. Against the crisp white and sharp black her choice of swirls and stringy stripes looks all the more graphic and sophisticated; slightly more masculine in feel then most pottery with some wit thrown in for good measure.

My favourite is her French Butter Dish because really, why wouldn’t you want a cloche de beurre?

Martine is located an hour outside of Montreal. If you are interested in her work you can contact her at mpoterie@hotmail.com
