Nelson potter displays at John Ward Fine Coffee

Nelson-based potter Kalika Bowlby is showing a selection of her pottery including mugs, vaces and teapots.

Nelson potter Kalika Bowlby shares her work at John Ward Fine Coffee on Baker Street.

One of the many great things about living in Nelson is the abundance of art and artists.

We live in such a rich creative community. This is evident in the arts events, the presence of Kootenay School of the Arts at Selkirk College and if look for it, you can find art, in some form or another, just about everywhere. Almost every coffee shop and many shops and restaurants feature a variety of artists monthly.

This month local potter Kalika Bowlby will be showing her work at John Ward Fine Coffee on the corner of Ward and Baker streets.

The show will feature not only her regular selection of cups, mugs, vases and teapots but also a series of plates hung on the wall and a small series of paintings exploring color and pattern.

Bowlby is a graduate of Kootenay School of the Arts where she is now a guest instructor and lecturer.

After continuing her education at Alberta College of Art and Design and completing a ceramic residency in Kansas City, Missouri, Bowlby returned to Nelson to set up her studio where she makes a full range of pottery and ceramic jewelry as well as teaches private classes.

Her work can also be found at Global Underground, Bella Flora and at the annual holiday sale she helps organize with a group of local artists. The sale will be held at Lilikoi on Baker Street this season and will be open November 27 to December 1.
