Sharoni Sibony is an educator, artist, and community organizer in Toronto. She holds a BA and an MA in English Literature from the University of Toronto, pursued part of a PhD in English at Indiana University, and took courses in Craft and Design (specialty: Ceramics) at Sheridan College. She worked in non-profit management for over a decade and was the instructor at Woodlawn Pottery for three years. Her pottery practice, developed over more than 25 years, focuses on functional hand-building and wheel throwing with a lot of carved surface decoration. She is now developing a new body of sculptural and non-functional work that explores the relationship between chronic illness, ritual, and rest. You can see some of her work in the Canadian Journal of Theology, Mental Health, and Disability here.
