In Memoriam

This month Studio Potter acknowledges the life and contributions made by Les Manning. We mourn with you.

From Carole Epp, “Anyone that crossed paths with Les left that interaction a different person; whether we were enamoured by the beauty and perspective he presented in his artwork, or if we were inspired by Les for his creative vision for our community. He was absolutely one of those people that changed how you saw the world around you. We wouldn’t now have the internationally respected Banff Centre Ceramics or Medalta’s International Residency without Les’s generosity and determined passion for bringing creatives together. In the hours since his passing, touching personal stories of Les are flooding social media, sharing with everyone the soul of a man who inspired so many, mentored us, and showed us how to dance, share, love, create, and make the most of our time and our friendships in this world.” Read more about his contributions to the world of ceramics on the International Academy of Ceramic's website.
