Our Favourite Makers

As we go about the business of making and selling foodstuffs, we occasionally come across fellow makers that align with our taste and sensibility. It only makes sense to bring them together here so that other like-minded individuals can access the hand crafted work of these talented, local makers. These one of a kind pieces naturally enhance the Provisions experience and bring warmth and beauty to your table.

Shed Pottery

Shed Pottery is a dream in progress. It is one person’s passion and love for turning clay into functional pieces.

Johann was raised and resides in the Niagara Region. Her grandmother was a talented potter whose gifted craftsmanship and guidance nurtured Johann’s skill and initiated her devotion to the art.
In 2011 shed pottery was born in Johann’s country home amongst her flock of chickens affectionately dubbed “The Golden Girls”. Using the potters wheel and hand building techniques she crafts her pots from stoneware. Layering glazes, hand painting and etching designs that are inspired from her surroundings and the changing season.

Johann loves being inspired by and collaborating with other local entrepreneurs. Visit her website at www.shedpotterybyjohann.com for her complete collection.

As with many things hand crafted, each piece is unique in its own way with no two pieces being exactly the same.  To that end, your chosen piece may not be exactly as shown.

 

 

Naked Grain Boards

nakedgrainboards200x200Based in St.Catharines, Kim Gillard imparts her love of carpentry, food and design in creating handcrafted, one of a kind cutting and serving boards.

Naked Grain Boards are artfully arranged using various species of hardwood to create a visually compelling piece. Each board begins by carefully selecting the wood based on its striking grain pattern and natural colour variations. Kim skilfully cuts, joins, sands and treats the wood to ensure the boards stand the test of time. Each board is finished with many coats of board butter made with mineral oil and Niagara beeswax and are suitable for cutting or serving.

Kim spent over 10 years in the restaurant industry before studying at the International Academy of Design and receiving her diploma from Niagara College’s Construction program.  Since graduation, the Niagara native has been working full time doing residential construction, custom & finish carpentry.
