Using white earthenware, underglazes and glazes, Wendy creates pottery that celebrates decoration for its own sake. Having travelled several times to Europe, Wendy became fascinated by the historical and decorative motifs
that were attached to centuries old monuments, gates, and almost any building made before the 20th century.
Upon her return to New Brunswick, Wendy noticed how little decoration we have in our surroundings. However, by scavenging in scrap yards, she found a richness of lines, colours and textures that were just as powerful in their visual appeal as European motifs. From these observations, Wendy created a solo exhibition entitled "Scavenging for Beauty" which was displayed at the City Gallery in Saint John in 2015. This bowl is a key piece from this show.
