Beautiful Pottery in the Margaree Valley

Beautiful Pottery in the Margaree Valley

Cape
Breton Clay is created by Margaree Valley native Bell Fraser. Bell’s
detailed drawings of local shellfish, flora and fauna are incorporated
into her platters, bowls and plates in ways that are refreshing and
bold. Located in one of the loveliest parts of the Island, this gallery
sits on the property where she was born and raised. Bell’s work has been
celebrated for years in publications across North America and the
gallery is open most days from mid-June to late October.

“Best
of Cape Breton” …Take time to visit Cape Breton Clay in the Margaree
Valley, where Bell Fraser makes some of the most beautiful pottery in
Canada.”   Victoria magazine

“While
undoubtedly modern… her work calls to mind such precedents as Victorian
majolica shell plates…While there is some whimsy here, there is
nothing cute: souvenir clichés are elevated to artistic subjects.” 
Canadian House & Home magazine

“One
of the hazards of being a guidebook writer is the requirement that I
look at a lot of pottery, much of it bad and almost all of it claiming
to be ‘unique.’ This work, by Margaree Valley native Bell Fraser,
actually IS unique. And quite wonderful…it’s worth a stop.” Frommer’s
guide.
