The People Behind the Pottery
Smiley Seahorse Ceramics is a husband and wife - Tim and Kylie - collaborating to make fun and functional ocean inspired pottery. Kylie does most of the wheel throwing and designing but every piece is a collaboration between the two as they work together to hand build, carve, create, handle and glaze. They get their inspiration from the beaches and wildlife around the Atlantic provinces where they grew up and their style reflects that through the use of bright colours and intricate carvings of ocean creatures and flowers. Their goal is to bring fun, affordable and beautiful pieces into the spaces where we spend the most time, like the home and the office, by making functional art pieces that were meant to be used every day.
