Donna Velcic

I was born and raised in the Yukon Territory although I have also lived in the Northwest Territories, British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.  After living in Alberta in the late 1970’s/early 1980’s, I moved to Ontario and returned about 16 years ago.  I am the past-president of the Waterloo Potter’s Guild and past member or the Francis Gage Sculpture Group in Guelph, Ontario.

I enjoy making functional pottery with porcelain stoneware which increasingly has Northern tones.  I develop my own glazes and enjoy solving problems and stretching the boundaries of clay and innovation.

I also design and build non-functional indoor/outdoor terra cotta clay creations including dragons, fairies and replicated medieval gargoyle reliefs.  Recently I have developed a new line of fantasy rune pots in the ancient glyphs of Vulcan as well as the Tangwar (Elvish) dialect.
