Some New Work

It has been a while since I have updated this blog section of my site, so I thought I'd say a quick hello.  I also wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has so graciously supported my Etsy shop and purchased my work online. It has been a great success for its first two years and I have received many positive reviews. I can't thank you all enough!

Here is some recent work to share. My Etsy store will continue to mainly stock smaller items such as tea bowls (chawan), small cups (yunomi), and sake cups (guinomi). You can visit the "Where to Buy" link above to learn about other locations for purchase of larger pieces.

Shop Opening Next Week!

The time has come for the launch of my online store on Etsy.

At the moment I am working on getting the first round of inventory on there, and as soon as it's ready it will officially open up for business.

It has been a little while now that I've hoped to get rolling with an online presence for the sale of some of my smaller, more one-of-a-kind chawans (tea bowls) and yunomi cups.

Locals in Montreal will be able to contact me to arrange pick-up of any items they purchase from the Etsy shop if they'd like to avoid shipping costs. I will offer the option to retrieve items from Galerie Farfelu in Westmount between 3-5 business days after purchase.

Soon you will be able to access it at  Add it to your bookmarks!

Follow along on Instagram at where I will count down to the opening.

Don Goddard on Etsy - Coming Soon

It has been a rainy spring in Montreal, and I am busily preparing new work for the upcoming 1001 pots show in July, followed by a window display at Galerie Farfelu.

I also have a new Etsy store in the works that I hope to launch later this year. It will be a showcase of my smaller works, starting out mainly with a collection of my tea bowls (chawan) available for purchase.

If you wish to know more about the launch of the new Etsy site, please follow along on my new instagram account where I'll be showing images of my new work, as well as some behind-the-scenes of my process.

Summer 2016 News

Here is a little preview of my current work from this summer. 

The 5th image and first tea bowl pictured won second place at this year's tea bowl/chawan competition at 1001 Pots in Val-David, Qc.

I am always grateful to have been invited to participate in this show from its earliest beginnings, it is always a joy to see the floods of people that enjoy it during our wonderful summer in the Quebec Laurentians. If you've never been I urge you to check it out next year, it always starts mid July through until mid August.

260 Fingers 2015

I will be participating in the 260 Fingers Ceramic Show in Ottawa again this year. It's coming up this weekend and is not to be missed. Referred to as "a short, sweet show of really worthwhile clay art", I cannot express how inspiring and well organized this show was the last time I was invited to participate. I look forward to another great year.

Show runs from November 13th through 15th, 2015.

I've neglected to post recently, so Happy New Year! Here are some images of my work on display at General Fine Craft in Almonte, Ontario from just before Christmas last year.

Hope to photograph some new work soon and get them on here.

Spring is On Its Way

The days are starting to get longer, or at least the sun is still visible at 5 o'clock which is a wonderful feeling. Over the past few months I have been working on some new work, but also spending lots of time on some personal projects and renovations.

Now that March is almost here there are some big changes about to take place at Galerie Farfelu, the cooperative that I am a part of in Westmount here in Montreal. Our store will be getting a face lift, creating a new experience for our customers and a new, refreshed environment for our work. My nephew Simon Johns is working with us to create something extra special for our boutique. The gallery will be closed from February 23rd to March 10th while we redo the floors, repaint and begin installations. Hope to see you there on March 11th!

Until then, here are a few newer pieces of mine.
