Winifred Shantz was herself a potter and a wide-ranging patron of the arts in the Kitchener-Waterloo area, and donated these 39 items to the permanent collection at the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery. I enjoy seeing art in any form, and this collection was no exception.
These photos are some of the items I particularly enjoyed.
I also toured through the gallery shop, and I saw a lot of other intriguing and beautiful glass and clay pieces. I especially loved the glass works of Jerre Davidson of Alma, On, and Gary Wilkinson of Nottawa, On, see below. Who wouldn't find art of this caliber an inspiration!? That's what I thought.
