A native of Ontario, Judy Tryon began her pottery career in Saskatoon, taking recreational classes in the early 1970’s. By the end of that decade, having taken continuing education, she was teaching pottery classes for the City of Saskatoon. In 1994, she opened her own teaching studio, JT Pottery. Judy also conducts workshops throughout the province and in schools.
Since 1984, Judy has produced several lines of hand built and wheel thrown functional ware, as well as “one of a kind” work, including Raku, salt, and smoke fired pottery. Her work is marketed through galleries, retail outlets, and craft shows. She has recently begun creating architectural ceramics commissioned for homes and businesses.
