small-batch functional ceramics

Bad Potter Ceramics

Bad Potter Ceramics is a small-batch, ceramics studio based out of Vancouver, B.C. Canada. 

Medium & Design

Currently working with mid-range stoneware, Bad Potter Ceramics are designed to accentuate the natural characters of the clay body. Each form takes around 25 days from beginning to end to complete – an immersive experience that demands detail and paradoxically, non-attachment at the same time.

A Maker's Mark

Unique and different in some way, each BP piece is hand-formed, bisque fired, glazed, and fired again at more than 2000 degrees fahrenheit, made to be strong and durable for everyday use. 

About the Maker

Vancouver-based, Chinese-Canadian artist Freda Lin is the hands behind Bad Potter Ceramics. An Art Institute of Vancouver graduate in communication design and digital arts, Freda found clay in 2017 and the medium quickly became an important part of her creative vocabulary. Since then, Freda’s work has been featured on GlobalTV, Cityline and in the Plaskett Gallery in New Westminster, B.C. Freda currently resides in Kitsilano where she’s creating small batch, functional stoneware ceramics and experimenting with various local community firings.
