Shelly Burden has a desire to introduce people of all ages to the techniques of making ceramic art on the potter’s wheel and with hand building. She maintains a personal studio and strives to continuously learn, teach and create new artwork. Shelly produces and sells commercial and commissioned pottery locally and internationally. While she primarily uses an electric kiln, Shelly enjoys all types of alternative firing methods which include Raku, barrel, saggar and pit firings. Her interest in clay began as a child in the late 1960s, when she made mud pies using dirt and leaves in her rural backyard. Today, she shares her love for clay at Rosewood Arts Centre as an instructor for Introduction to Ceramics: Wheel Throwing.
