Graham Sheehan has been a
potter for many years operating Sunstone Pottery on Gabriola
Island, British Columbia where he produces a wide range of functional
ware. He has pursued both high-fire reduction and wood-fired pottery,
making an ever changing array of pots for domestic use.
A multi-talented craftsman, Graham
brings a wealth of practical experience to ceramics education. He
was an instructor in the ceramics program at Malaspina University
College for five years, as well as leading numerous workshops in various
aspects of pottery. For a number of years Graham has offered introductory
programs in ceramics for children and adults from his home studio.
With a degree in civil engineering,
Graham also has a solid understanding of the more technical aspects
of being a potter. Over the years he has built more than fifteen kilns,
both gas and wood fired.
