Kevin MacLean

Tewlery

“Part artist, pack rat, and mad re-inventor... what society considers junk I rework into functional, sculptural objects.”

As a metal oddment artist, Kevin MacLean has been visiting auction houses, yard sales, surplus dealers, finding and gathering urban flotsam for about fifteen years, slowly building up a large “palette” of industrial fittings and generally odd “high tech junk”. He looks for circular shapes and highly crafted components and often the pieces he finds dictate the direction of the sculpture. 

Look for Kevin's "Tewelry" Line in OMAH's gift shop.

Leishman Pottery

Wolf stained mugs by Leishman Pottery

In 1990, Mike and Connie decided to establish a new product line, pottery that felt and looked Canadian.  All of their past experiences, from Art College, to Dramatic Arts, to living in the near north came into play to create this new pottery design.  What resulted was a natural clay hand stamped with a loon motif on pottery that would be used daily; a kind of rustic and refined stoneware. Celebrating 35 years in a 100 year old School House, Mike and Connie Leishman established their pottery business in Cobalt, ON in 1975.
