"I love the endless challenge that clay and everything to do with pottery provides. Clay is the medium through which I reach out to community and inwards, to create peace."
Kerri Holmes is a teacher, potter, musician and mother living in Kimberley, BC. She makes stoneware pottery of a minimalist design aesthetic and quiet colour palettes. Holmes studied clay at the Kootenay School of Art and Design and received her BFA major in Ceramics from the Alberta College of Art and Design.
Red stoneware reminds Kerri of the Nova Scotia mudflats were her family reunited every summer. It's a warm and earthy reminder of humble beginnings. Her signature white glaze is rich in titanium that responds well to surface textures.
Kerri's pottery is for everyday service. It may be put in the dishwasher or microwave.
