Full Name: Dave Dobie: Pottery by Dave & Family

Medium: Handmade pottery: mugs, bowls, vases, etc.

How long have you been doing your art: 45 years on and off. Took time off while the kids were growing up. Now that they are at university, we started up the pottery again.

What got you originally interested in the art you do: Got started in High School & luckily there was a potter just down the road from where I grew up: Venema Pottery here in Abbotsford.

What is something you have learned about yourself through your art: Patience !!

What do you enjoy the most about your art: I enjoy all the aspects, including the selling. It’s all interesting & even after 45 years, still find new stuff to keep it interesting.

What is something most people don’t know about you: Family is the most important thing to us. That’s why we named our business Pottery by Dave & Family, to be inclusive of all the support we get.

Why are you a member of the Kamloops Arts Council: We’ve been doing Art in the Park for quite a few years now. It’s a great show and we enjoy the trip up to Kamloops & spending the day there.

What are you looking forward to the most in this upcoming year (A special show or project you’re working on): Looking forward to Art in the Park 2021. Hopefully it happens this year. Last year it didn’t happen due to Covid, so we’re hoping that it goes ahead this year.
