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.
