Timothy Smith operates Gleason Brook Pottery near Wiarton, Ontario. He is well known in the region for his beautifully crafted, functional stoneware. Along with his regular work, he also does a few wood firings each year with spectacular results.
 
As a Christmas present in 1988, while still a student in electrical engineering, his wife gave him a set of pottery lessons at Harbourfront in Toronto, and his life was changed.
 
It is partly the process and partly the lifestyle that he finds most appealing.
 
An important part of the yearly cycle has been providing an opportunity for student potters. It is very much a two way inspiration process. They can get a chance to work in a functioning studio, to see that it is possible to earn a living this way and he gains a lot from their perspectives.
 
The Artist’s Statement:
I strongly believe that life’s enjoyment can be enhanced through daily use of and personal contact with, beautiful objects of function. I try to make pots which satisfy that belief.
