Gabrielle Kauffman specializes in wheel thrown stoneware that is food, microwave and dish-washer safe. Her bowls and mugs are in highest demand, but she also sells vases and wine cups.
Gabrielle is largely self taught but has taken part-time classes at Central Technical School, George Brown College and one course at the Ontario College of Art. Her studio overlooks a forested ravine on the banks of the Humber River. The natural forms, textures and colours inspire her work. Gabrielle experiments with overlapping glazes and wax resist to achieve richly coloured, soothing and unpredictable results. You may recognize influences from Thomson, Klimt, Matisse, O’Keefe and William Morris in her designs. Gabrielle draws from her heritage, incorporating the simple beauty and function of historical Dutch pottery. All work is microwave and dishwasher safe
