Norrie, Shane – Paintings

Shane Norrie was born in 1978 in London, Ontario and currently resides in Ingersoll.

He graduated in 2000 from Conestoga College in Kitchener, with a certificate in Graphic Design and Advertising. Before and during his studies at Conestoga, he dabbled in ceramics as a hobby.

Upon graduation, Shane worked in the field of advertising in Toronto for one year, before deciding to pursue ceramics full-time in 2001.  After leaving his advertising career behind, he was employed part-time as a kiln technician at the Burlington Art Centre. This allowed him access to a variety of kilns, and a place where he could experiment with various facets of pottery making and firing techniques.

He has participated in a number of exhibitions, from humble beginnings at the local Creative Arts Centre in Ingersoll, to participating in the 8-month travelling International Chawan exhibition in 2005, alongside four other Canadian Ceramic Artists.  The Japanese Embassy in Belgium sponsored this exhibition.  Also in 2005, Shane participated in ‘Beyond Boundaries’, with 3 other Canadian ceramic artists in ‘Gallerie In der Allert’ in Keispelt, Luxembourg. This exhibition included artists from Canada, United States, Sweden, Australia, and Hong Kong.  Most recently, he was invited to participate in an invitational ceramics exhibition, in October 2009 at Sanbao Ceramics Institute in Jingdezhen, China.

Shane was an active member at the Ingersoll Creative Arts Centre, teaching workshops and classes to adults, teens, and children in the early 2000’s, and has given workshops to various groups and organizations throughout the province. He served on the Board of Directors for FUSION: The Ontario Clay and Glass Association in 2002 as Director at Large, where he put his formal graphic design and advertising skills to use, promoting FUSION, and its affiliated activities. After much deliberation, he resigned from FUSION Board of Director, to pursue his rapidly growing ceramics career. He hopes to continue once again with FUSION, when time allows.

Since 2002, he has maintained a studio and showroom, and supplied numerous galleries throughout Canada, and primarily in Ontario.  Some of the galleries that currently exhibit his work on an ongoing basis are: Art Gallery of Ontario, Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery, Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art, Burlington Art Centre, and MacKenzie Art Gallery in Saskatchewan.

He and his work have been published in Clay Times Magazine, FUSION Magazine, Ceramics: Art & Perception, Canadian House & Home Magazine, London City Life Magazine, Treasures of Ontario, and Canada’s Style at Home Magazine.In October 2008, he was featured with his ceramics on HGTV’s ‘Pure Design’, which aired both in Canada, and the United States.

In 2004, Shane created an Art Award at his former high school, to be given annually to a graduating student, who is pursuing visual art-related studies at the post-secondary level.

Shane’s fascination with and passion for ceramics will continue to push him to experiment with the medium, as long as he is able.
