Roger Kerslake

Roger Kerslake’s prolific career has paralleled a period of great expansion in Canadian ceramics. With roots in the influential British Pottery movement, Roger’s work as an artist and educator during the early days of the Georgian College School of Design and Visual Art was instrumental in developing a new generation of ceramicists. His work was featured here at the Orillia Museum of Art and History in 2016 in his show Roger Kerslake: Artist, Potter, Teacher. He and his wife, Heather, own Kerlake Pottery located in Horseshow Valley.

Heather and her husband, Roger, own Kerslake Pottery in Horseshoe Valley.
