Don Goddard works from his home studio in Lachine, Quebec. He has been a potter for forty years. He studied at The Montreal Museum Of Fine Arts School of Art and Design, but discovered his love for clay with Dean Mulavey at The Pottery in North Hatley, Quebec. His work can be found in public and private collections and he is the recipient of the Prix 1001 Pots and the Gaetan Beaudin Award for excellence in a body of work.
Don’s pieces are made from stoneware and porcelain fired in reduction in a gas kiln. He uses layered and multiple fired shino glazes to achieve rich and varied surfaces in his work.
“Working with clay is like having a joyful dialogue with nature. I hope that my works speaks of vitality through surface, strength through form, and purpose through function.”
