Our Instructor:

Chris Hartmann brings 20+ years of pottery experience to A Third Space. Born and raised in Ridgeway, Ontario, Ms Hartmann honed her skills in studios throughout the greater Toronto and Oakville area and her passion and commitment to the ceramic arts are evident in her vision and creation of A Third Space.

Our Clay:

Clay is a natural product dug from the earth, usually in areas where streams or rivers once flowed. Pottery is not made from raw clay but from a mixture of clay and other minerals which give the clay different properties when worked with and fired. The three most common types of clay are earthenware, stoneware and kaolin. The studio is stocked with four colours; pure white, speckled white, red or black clay.
