About The Pottery
Paul Stewart's passion for pottery is genetic. And, as The Pottery's resident potter, he spins more than 25 years of experience between his steady hands. It was 1985 when Paul decided to follow his father's footsteps and enter the profession. For some time after, Paul bounced around Toronto-area studios until landing in Bloor West Village, where he's remained for more than a decade.
Over that time, Paul has created award-winning works that have appeared in magazines, on TV, and in films, and many of his pieces can be bought and added to private collections or worn as part of all-ceramic wardrobes. More than just the birthplace of porcelain decor, Paul also utilizes The Pottery's space to lead lessons and workshops–something he's done for a dozen years. He instructs all ages of students during introductory sessions, as well as during themed workshops and curriculum-based courses.
