Bill Boyd

Bill Boyd: “My first contact with pottery making came in Sweden where I was attending art school back in 1970.

“Little did I know then how those moments were about to influence my future path. I went on to establish “Solbacken Ceramics” with a friend in a seaside village in south-west Sweden.

“There we produced earthenware, gas fired stoneware, and wood fired stoneware in kilns I designed and built.

“During those 11 years we met and worked with several talented and successful potters and had shows in galleries and museums.

“In Sweden I was influenced by the Scandinavian aesthetic which favours simplicity and clean lines.

“I was also exposed to the work and writings of Shõji Hamada, Sõetsu Yanagi and Bernard Leach. This exposed me to Asian thinking and styles, including some of the classic glazes of history: celadon, tenmoku, chun, shino and more.

“In 2002 I discovered Zinc-Silicate crystal glazes. It soon became an obsession and I have pursued this elusive phenomenon continually since then.

“Currently, I live and work with my partner Shao Fang on beautiful Galiano Island in the Southern Outer Gulf Islands of British Columbia, Canada.”

During these past 33 years, White Rock Gallery has become one of the most durable art destinations in British Columbia and a well-regarded online venue across North America and beyond. We understand that original art cannot be pushy. It should leave our walls for yours only when it speaks to you personally and persuasively. Step one for the gallery is simply to assemble compelling pieces of art, by building strong relationships with our diverse array of professional artists. Step two is to provide a welcoming, unhurried environment in which the displays are always kept fresh and interesting. Running through all these years is the forging of respectful relationships with clients whom we’ve known in many cases for over two decades. And we’re always happy to speak with newcomers. A phone call is a great way to start if you aren’t able to drop by in person.
