Bill Reddick, a self-taught artist, received meaningful ceramics experience while a student at Lakefield College School in the mid-70’s. He attended Queen's University after which he established a studio in Prince Edward County, Ontario in 1982. Bill was deeply affected by Song Dynasty porcelain of China where he toured in 1998. In 2009 he travelled to Korea as a participating artist in the Cheongju World Craft Biennale. Influenced by both these Asian traditions his work demonstrates a fluency of form and technique while expressing contemporary design. Bill created Canada’s Official State Dinnerware. The “Maple Leaf Service” was enjoyed by President Obama on his state visit to Canada in 2009 and later by the Emperor and Empress of Japan. Bill’s “Plate with National Imagery” features Canada Geese in flight and represented Canada internationally and at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. His place settings are also in the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo, Japan.
