Chris Rookwood moved to Toronto in 2009. That’s when she fell in love with clay. Chris works with a variety of clay bodies creating functional tableware with design that makes each piece unique. In addition she has started to focus on larger, more sculptural pieces that move beyond function to artistic expression. Creating form and design into each piece is a process that necessitates patience, curiosity, experimentation, thought, and for her, an intimate relationship with clay itself. The ability to laugh at and learn from disappointments are key to keeping Chris's creative channels open and alive.
