a site 2 see friday: Crooked Pot Gallery


The Parkland Potters Guild was established in 1976 and is a non-profit organization run by volunteers to promote and foster an education in clay throughout our community. Our membership is made up of 65 members from Stony Plain, Spruce Grove and The County of Parkland.  We offer member led classes for adults, teens and children.

We have completed 3 murals on the building adjacent to the guild and have completed mural projects for the Alberta Summer and Winter Games.  One can be found on the gazebo at Rotary Park in Stony Plain and the latest one on the facade of our gallery.  Stony Plain is well known for the town murals and we are pleased to be active in mural making.

The Crooked Pot Gallery is the store front for the guild.  It contains work from more than 30 local guild artisans.  We offer unique handmade collectables, art, sculptures, jewelry, seasonal items as well as functional pottery.  Each month we offer featured artists displays.  The blog is a pictorial diary of the work of gallery potters and of many of the events we participate in or sponsor.
