Shane is a clay potter who lives in Stratford, Ontario. He states that "although I experiment with many different types of clay, glazes and firing methods, my interests are in surface effects and textures. I love glazes that are transformed by the kilns and firing processes. I love to be surprised when I unload the kiln. I think my curiosity keeps my work fresh and interesting." Some of his awards and exhibitions include Containers of Beauty at the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art in Toronto, Ontario and the Juror's Choice Award at the Woodstock Public Art Gallery in Woodstock, Ontario. Shane continues to work in his home studio and showroom in Stratford. His pieces are strictly ornamental.
