Gisele Bick has been practicing for sixteen years and a pottery teacher for nine. She mostly creates one-of-a-kind functional pieces decorated entirely with glazes she creates herself, transforming them into works of art. Her brand, G-Pots, is available in retail stores across Essex County and she was awarded the Mayor’s Art Award for Lakeshore, in 2018. Gisele brings her dedication to her craft to Ford City Potters, where she hopes her love for pottery becomes contagious.

Lisa Gabriele has been practicing pottery for three years, after first learning how to throw in high school, from the same pottery teachers as Gisele! She mostly creates one-off pieces and small series—wheel thrown and handbuilt—that are both functional and whimsical. She sells in a few local retailers in Toronto and Windsor, and was included in the Toronto Potter’s Biennial at the Gardiner Museum, fall/winter, 2023. She’ll be teaching handbuilding at Ford City Potters and assisting in other classes.
