Pridham Studio was founded by Nancy and David Pridham in the mid 90s. Now their daughter and son-in-law are continuing and expanding the business.
Jeremiah and Micah produce their distinctive line of pottery full-time at Pridham Studio. Owners since 2011, they have established themselves as a creative production team with Jeremiah as the potter and Micah as the painter.
Jeremiah throws a variety of shapes on the wheel including mugs, bowls and vases, with his mugs being their top selling items. He also makes a wide range of hand built slab pieces from small side plates to generously large serving bowls working in both earthenware and stoneware bodies. His pieces demonstrate his sensitive attention to detail and technical precision. He is keen to experiment as well as do production; a classic working artist.
Micah then paints each piece with beautiful glazes following the worldwide tradition of descriptive hand-painted pottery. Her patterns spring from their BC roots and feature landscapes, animals, and local scenes. Her “Community Pride” series is well known throughout galleries in western Canada—you will recognize the Big Orange Bridge in her Nelson patterns, the SS Moyie for Kaslo, and the snowy drifts and chairlifts in Whistler. She also does commissioned designs for individuals or corporations in her personal artistic and heartfelt style. Micah and Jeremiah also have a love for the subtlety of abstract design and simple colour and fill their gallery with these pieces as well.
