Dave at the lathe



David Hudgel

The first time David Hudgel put a piece of wood on the lathe, he felt artistic energy.  David is a retired physician, now able to spend much more time at his creative passion. On the lathe the wood presents grain and color patterns that are blended with curves and angles to finalize an art form.  Elements such as bark inclusions and cracks are left as components of the design, highlighting Nature’s beauty. Productions range from bowl sets to asymmetrical artistic figures.





Ginger and Bill Weber

Riverview Pottery was born in 2017.  Ginger was taking classes at Lambton College and told Bill she would like to buy a kiln and a wheel.

After purchasing both pieces, the grandchildren came and love doing pottery.  Bill said, show me how….and she did.

Now they both love to create in the pottery shed.  It is a very good way to unwind from his job of being Mayor of Lambton Shores. 

Through spinning, forming, firing, glazing, and firing again you get a beautiful and functional piece of pottery. Your piece is fired to 2200 degrees and is safe for normal use in the oven, microwave and  dishwasher.

R. Jean Taylor

Born in Summerside, P.E.I. Jean spent most of her youth in London, ON. taking art courses at HB Beal and U.W.O. Sculpture, drawing and print making were her main interests. Later on she took up painting in oil and acrylic mediums." I would say I'm self taught as a painter. Learning the principles of design and going from there to develop a more intuitive style of painting. I aim for a more abstract quality to my work and find I have to keep revising and pulling back when the work starts developing into a more realistic style." I like the  challenges of abstract painting." 

North Vancouver, B.C. was home from 1993 to 2015. Living in B.C., she emerced herself in art and theatre.

Jean was a member of the North Shore Artists Guild where she exhibited most of her work. She was accepted into many juried shows at the Ferry Building in West Vancouver and the Seymour Art Gallery in North Vancouver. She won Jury Choice award in 2014 at the Ferry Blvd Gallery and another at Seymour Art Gallery.
