About The Member

Juanita is a self-taught potter. She was born & raised in the community of Terra Nova & finished high School in Gambo NL. Glovertown is now home! After completing her Bachelor of Environmental (Architecture) Design Degree in 1986, she took her first pottery course in Dartmouth NS. Many years later in 2011; after working, getting married and raising a daughter, she took another beginner pottery course with the Fort McMurray Pottery Guild. From there, she immersed herself in ceramics at the Guilds’ studio and “got lost in clay”. In 2013, she moved back home to Glovertown & built her own studio. There, she continues to explore and incorporate her “less is more” design philosophy making functional and decorative stoneware potter
