I send special promotions and notification of shop updates to newsletter subscribers, and as you know a lot of what I make sometimes never happens again.

So mosey your way through the menus, check out my blog posts, the links to my social media, and the About Me for background information on my career. I think you will find it a fun journey. Enjoy, Diane Sullivan, MFA.

ARABESQUE POTTERY: THE BACKSTORY
My earlier work sought to decipher decoration’s meaning and relationship to our current world. In 1996, I created Arabesque Pottery, a studio line of functional and non-functional forms that complement my larger one-of-a-kind pieces. I make the work on the potter's wheel or by hand building slabs of clay then decorate when the clay is still wet either by carving in to the clay or applying a print transfer technique.
‘Arabesque’ literally means ‘arab-like’ and was coined by Europeans to define movements in the arts influenced by Islam. You’ll find an arabesque in poetry, dance, music and architecture. I am using it for the visual reference to an architectural detail known as an arabesque, or in layman’s terms, a ‘curlicue’, which you will find in a lot of my work. The arabesque suggests the beauty and continuity of life.
In 2006, I had the great pleasure of traveling to China for a residency. The result of that visit has been the return to larger scale sculptures, now incorporating figurative references. And I still create the pottery line. Both the sculptures and the pottery have historical references to European and Asian ceramic history as well as everyday Canadian life.
