The Potters Place Gallery, in downtown Courtenay, is delighted to present Anne Marie Veale as our
Feature Artist for the month of July together with her husband, Jason Marlow, an internationally
recognized woodturner. This husband and wife team share a studio gallery at their home in Qualicum
Anne Marie’s work features her designs developed over a 30 year career as a studio potter. Platters,
plates, teapots and jugs alike are comfortably weighted, solidly built for daily use and can go from oven
to table with ease. What sets them apart from other functional pottery, is her colourful and whimsical
decoration. Whether it be cats curled on a windowsill, pansies in a garden or a lovely country
landscape, there is no doubt that Anne Marie Veale is an artist whose work will touch you.
Jason is one of Canada's most distinguished studio woodturners, recognized internationally for his
innovative and original pieces. He uses sustainable indigenous woods of British Columbia. He
produces wall pieces to architectural scale as well as a wide range of smaller objects inspired by
Vancouver Islands forests, rivers, mountains and wildlife.
