Green ware ladies backI am Helga and I am the resident potter at Grandview Pots and Ceramic studio. Grandview Pots is my home based pottery studio and a much cherished creative outlet located in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada.

Born in Cuba and raised in Canada, I began learning to throw on the wheel in 1995 at the Art Gallery of Burlington and at the renowned Dundas Valley School of Art.

In 2005 I was accepted to join the Mississauga Potters Guild and in 2015 I joined the Hamilton Potters Guild where I remain a member today.

In 2017 I relocated to St. Catharines and established my home studio where I now create all my pieces and I can guarantee you will not see two pieces that are absolutely identical and I believe that in this is the true beauty of handmade objects.

My main influences to create come from nature, curiosity and from need. I also get many influences from my Caribbean roots where Art and free roaming chickens are a common every day sight. From this influence I make many decorative pieces like chickens, Cardinals, gnomes and garden decor such as mushrooms and lighthouses. As well I am drawn to creating functional pieces such as butter dishes, lidded vessels, mugs and random tableware pieces.

My pottery can be found on display and for sale at Gate Street Studio in Niagara on the Lake. It is also for sale on my Etsy shop, at the Third Space Pottery Market sale and on this website in my shop. Payment is accepted by Paypal, cash or by E-Transfer. Mushroom Bug home 2
