This work is an accumulation of research I have been conducting for the past four years on pottery made by my ancestors.  Using pottery sherds as a starting point, I recreate vessels that are inspired by works made by the Indigenous People in the ancient Lake Agassiz region.  I collect clay from many regions in Manitoba and mix it with temper from rough sand and crushed granite obtained from ceremony.  I use only tools that come from the land and handbuild each vessel using a method that was passed down from a knowledge keeper.  Finally each piece is fired in a pit fire out on the land.  I create each artwork with good intentions; I smudge before I start creating and I sing during the process to show gratitude.  

All prices includes shipping in Canada only. If you want to purchase a piece, email me the item you are interested in. I accept etransfers to art.kcadams@gmail.com or 204-801-4858.
