I have been granted sabbatical leave starting September 2012.
During my leave I plan on spending time in Paris visiting art galleries and museums. I have been researching French ceramic artists and I may do some side trips to view some of the ceramic collections and workshops in the south of France. I will also be travelling within Canada to visit a few workshops, collections and production centers. I am very excited with the clay sculptures I am currently working on and I hope that my sabbatical will give me the opportunity to further develop my coloring and glazing skills.
