Chandler Swain

I live and work in the village of Blakeney near Almonte, Ontario, 1/2 hour west of Ottawa. We live beside the Mississippi River ( not THE Mississippi: this one is in Lanark County , Ontario, Canada ) and as a result the natural world around me is inspirational. Foxes, Herons, Turtles and Otters are our neighbours. Early morning walks in the woods with Michael and our dog Nell, gardening, and studio time fill most days.

I was trained in graphic design, painting and drawing at art college ( with 3 very inspiring years in England) and then majored in ceramic art at Sheridan College near Toronto. I have been a studio potter since the late 70’s.
