Terry Osborne Pottery is located in an 1840’s era brick farmhouse near the village of Lynden, Ontario. Although Lynden is now a part of the new city of Hamilton, it retains its rural roots. In fact, the pottery is located smack in the middle of a cornfield.
In the summer of 1982, Terry built the kiln with a little help from a few potting friends. Originally fired with propane, the kiln is now powered by natural gas. Loading the kiln with pots takes about 4 hours. The firing lasts 18 hours or so, then the kiln is allowed to cool for two days.
A partial list of her ware includes jugs, mugs, casseroles, platters, plates, bowls, vases, butter dishes, teapots, cups and saucers, canister sets, goblets, tureens and ladles. Terry also takes orders for custom place settings.
