WELCOME TO MY SHOP // Bad Potter Ceramics - Perfectly Imperfect Handmade Ware, a small-batch, handmade ceramics studio in Vancouver, BC.
MEDIUM & DESIGN // Currently experimenting with medium grog stoneware with iron-flecked speckles and white burning clay, The Bad Potter ceramics are designed to accentuate the natural characters of the clay body. Each form takes around 25 days from beginning to end to complete - an immersive experience that demands detail and paradoxically, non-attachment at the same time.
A MAKERS MARK // Unique and different in some way, each BP piece is hand-formed, bisque fired, glazed, and fired again at more than 2000 degrees fahrenheit, made to be strong and durable for everyday use. Food-safe unless state, (microwave, oven, dishwasher safe) recommend hand-washing, avoid thermal shock.
ABOUT THE MAKER // Vancouver-based Chinese-Canadian designer Freda Lin is the hands behind Bad Potter Ceramics. Freda is an Art Institute of Vancouver graduate majoring in Graphic Design and studied at BCIT for Digital Marketing and Design. Combining her curiosity about clay, passion for creating with her hands, and her graphic design background, Freda produces small-batch, functional and sustainable ceramics that can be cherished for life.
SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES // The studio's ethos intersects with minimalism and zero waste practices. Freda strives to minimize waste and repurpose materials in the various stages of the creation, such as reclaiming unfired clay, glazes, and using eco-friendly, biodegradable packing materials.
