Janet Doble

Janet Doble Pottery

, NS

For over 30 years Janet created functional and decorative pieces to enhance people’s homes and lives. Her production work consisted mainly of thrown functional tableware glazed with a maiolica glaze and decorated with bright festive colours and floral patterns inspired by European ceramics. She also created hand built one-of- a-kind pieces in which she explored various other glazes, textures and images.
She is currently looking for new ways to continue her clay practice. Last summer she did an artist residency in Parrsboro NS, at Art Lab. It was a most wonderful experience and she fell in love with the art community there and the beauty of the region. It is her hope that she will find a new home in that community and this summer will become a member of  Art Lab, with her own studio space.
Janet has a BFA in ceramics from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University. In 1990 she did a residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts. Her work has won awards including Best Body of Work at Show of Hands, Nova Scotia Designer Craft Council summer festival 1998, and the Popular Choice Award presented by the Ottawa Guild of Potters, Fireworks 2003.
In 2013, she travelled to France and did a 6 week residency at A.I.R Vallauris. Janet is actively involved with the arts community. For eight years she was president of the Nova Scotia Potters Guild. She was Chair of Visual Arts News and is currently on staff as Ad Sales Manager. She has also helped to compile the Halifax Art Map and the Guide to Craft and Arts in NS, and the Studio Rally annual publications promoting artists and craftspeople in the province.
