Curzon Pottery's Mr. Paul Shoemaker
What a great pleasure it has been ...to have been able to present the work of one of Newfoundland's true pioneer potters. Paul turns 80 years young in 2012 and has decided to retire from producing his classic slip cast ornaments. He has produced over 40,000 over the years at his incredible studio in Curzon Village (in the Woody Point area of Gros Morne National Park). Thankfully we have ordered extra of his ornaments for this his final ornament production year, which will no doubt cause them to become even bigger collectors items than they have in the past...and they were hard to keep in stock before now!
