Larry Duguay opened Ptarmigan Pottery in 1995 and has been making pots ever since.

Working almost exclusively on the wheel, he generally uses white stoneware or porcelain clay, but also colored clay and slips. To produce more harder and durable work, he uses a “high-fire” range.

Larry considers himself a “maker” and his goal is to make pots that are functionally strong from the design perspective, but will not lack attractive forms and surface decoration. He applies glazes through a variety of techniques, including dipping, pouring, spraying and ‘brushing’ – often applying six or more glazes on one piece.

Over the past few years Larry has been using altering techniques while the form is still soft to create additional surface variation, here clay slips have been used to create surface texture.

Quote: Larry DuGuay:
“My greatest rewards as a potter are spending time in the studio transforming a lump of clay into a useful and attractive object and seeing the pleasure that this can bring to others”.

Larry has also been teaching pottery classes at Arts Underground for some 8 years.
