Mud puddles were Gail's intuitive beginnings. By the age of ten, she was a potter; by fourteen a pottery teacher. To this day Gail loves the mud puddle sensation of wiping her clay covered hands on her jeans. Growing up in an artistic family (architect father, potter mother), Gail received the encouragement, support, and influence that every artist needs in order to develop and persist.

Gail Carlson is a recognized Saskatchewan potter who specializes in both production functional pottery and hand-built one-of-a-kind pieces. During her early studies at the University of Saskatchewan, she was a natural at hand-building and sculptural form. This passion - the love of form and play of light - continues in her creative expression today.

I have always had a fascination with archeology. My work is created in the 21st century and holds secrets of past eras and civilizations blended with today's world. I wonder what stories would be created from my art by future archeologists....
