Knowledge shared by institutions

David Lambert, a trained potter, arrived from England immediately after World War Two. He is fondly known as the ‘Father of pottery in BC’. Lambert designed small kilns, sought out materials, taught classes, and encouraged the Vancouver School Board to include pottery in their curriculum. Lambert Potteries was the first commercial studio pottery in Vancouver. The use of native motifs reflected a growing interest among the non-native community in First Nations art during the 1950s.
