Residential School Pottery Bowl

Ref: 5020

SOLD

A circa 1930's art pottery bowl from the Shubenacadie Residential School. Features original label on underside. This piece of pottery is from a terrible period in Nova Scotia's indigenous history but remains as a steadfast reminder of it. The glaze on this bowl is very similar to a residential school pottery lamp we offered earlier this year. Interestingly, research has revealed that well-known Nova Scotia potter Alice Hagen used her own money to help start the studio at the Shubenacadie Residential School, but sadly the nuns whom she'd instructed on teaching pottery lessons to the students were transferred elsewhere and the studio was closed. 

Dimensions: 7"x2.5"
