Pottery With a Purpose

Pottery With a Purpose

Coming from a long line of makers, Terrice’s work was initially inspired by the kitchens, gardens, tableware and women’s craft of her young years in rural New York State. Extra spice for creativity came later through a travelling career of several decades with schooling development efforts in Africa, the Balkans, and Asia.

In 2020, Terrice and her husband moved west to Victoria, British Columbia from Newfoundland — with her faithful pottery wheel in tow. You can find her at select local pop-ups.

The month of May saw Terrice’s Spring collection pop up at Marigold Cafe.  A colour kaleidoscope of personal mugs galore ** her signature zen cups & Buddha bowls with chopsticks ** succulent & cactus pot gardens ** family serving bowls ** hardwood boards ** blingstones for boots ‘n backpacks * & so much more.

Another Year – Another Distanced Christmas Staff Luncheon

Another Year – Another Distanced Christmas Staff Luncheon

WWH Christmas Staff Lunch 2021 saw an upgrade from pizza and boutique soda pops.  Our lunch was catered by a local company, Truffles Catering.  They offer a dedicated service, locally-driven & distinctive cuisine.

We made selections from their Grazing Menu.  This included their massive grazing “charcuterie” board of artisan cheeses and cured meats, grilled veggies, olives/pickles, bread/crackers, and homemade condiments.  We included Vegetarian maki rolls for those who swing away from meats and animal by-products and a lovely bowl of crisp homemade root vegetable chips.  Finished by a selection of lovely squares and bars for those with a sweet tooth. What will next hold?!

DRIFT Beach Dubai: Restaurant Spotlight

DRIFT Beach Dubai: Restaurant Spotlight

We have the pleasure of multiple sales of our culinary products to the One&Only Royal Mirage in Dubai; destined for their restaurant and bar, Drift. It is an award-winning beachfront destination where style and effortless luxury meet an understated elegance through design and aesthetics.

DRIFT showcases an innovative take on classic Provencal cuisine with an emphasis on the finest organic ingredients, freshness and simplicity. It is a culinary indulgence, complemented by an innovative cocktail menu.

Our daughter and family live in Western Australia. At this moment in time, there are no direct flights and living about as far away as possible from us, we might as well drill a hole and drop down, we’ll pretty much come out right beside them. In any case, whether we fly east or west, it takes the same length of time. I’m hoping one day to have a layover in Dubai and have a taste of the luxury offered by the Drift. Why not?!
