Karla Strickland

Karla is a self taught ceramic artist who lives and works on the west coast of Vancouver Island in Ucluelet, BC. Love for pottery started many years ago and gets stronger every day. She aims to create contemporary functional wares that reflect the colours and lifestyle that is enjoyed on the Coast. While wheel work does make a large portion of her pieces, a true passion for sculpture and hand-building remains a strong element in her style. Emphasis on plate wares comes from her passion for the culinary arts, her works can be found in Ucluelet and Tofino at Long Beach Lodge Resort, Merge Artisan Gallery, The Wreckage and Pina. Karla currently works in her home studio, and offers classes September-June.
