2011 – Isabella St. John

Potter and ceramic artist Isabella St. John operates Blue Moon Pottery located in the Battery overlooking St. John’s Harbour.

For the Awards, she has created a series of five individual porcelain lanterns. They were thrown, altered, carved, and then glazed in “chameleon” creating highly variable colours – from smoky grey green, to golden rust, to a soft olive white. The lanterns add warmth and a sense of peace to a room; they have a quiet presence and an architectural quality that is meditative and calm.

Isabella feels the recipients of these Awards are the light-bearers of the province’s artistic community, so it’s appropriate that they be recognized by the symbol of a lantern.

Her pieces will be presented to the winners of the Artist of the Year, Arts in Education, Emerging Artist, Arts Achievement, and Patron of the Arts Awards.
