Columbia Basin Culture Tour

Robin DuPont Ceramics

Atmospheric pottery; Functional; Decorative

Robin DuPont is a full-time studio potter and ceramic educator specializing in atmospheric firing—a process that reveals subtle and unpredictable tones, surfaces and effects on his ceramic work. Having travelled extensively to teach, build and fire kilns across North America and abroad, he also maintains his home and studio practice outside of Nelson, BC where he utilizes wood to fire his kilns to extremely hot temperatures.

During the Culture Tour, visitors are invited to tour the various kilns and learn how the repurposing of byproducts from the local forest industry plays an important part in achieving the unique surfaces on Robin's work during his atmospheric firings.

Choose from a variety of handmade, functional wares including bowls, mugs, teapots, dinnerware, pitchers, vases, pie plates, butter dishes and more. Each piece is unique, and can perform in many contexts: in the kitchen, at the table, on the wall and in the gallery setting.

A recently renovated vintage 1959 Airstream trailer serves as a showroom for Robin's finished work, and offers a distinctive setting to exhibit the finished one-of-a-kind pieces.
