June Goodwin was born in 1951 in Meppershall, England – a rural village listed in the Domesday book from 1063. June started her artistic career studying fashion at Luton University, UK and Fabric at S.O.C.A.D. Having explored various media over the years, June now works exclusively in clay, producing practical items that are not only useful and attractive, but hopefully a joy to use. Current work is focused on surface design that uses addition and subtraction to create one of a kind surfaces. As a member of the Kawartha Potters Guild, she has served the guild as chair, treasurer and on the programs committee. She was one of the core group of
volunteers to spear head the move to a 24/7 studio and gallery at Talwood and continues to support the guild as an instructor and by showing her work in the Gallery. Her work can also be seen at the “ARTISANity” show. She has taken numerous ceramic workshops in both Canada and the UK. She loves teaching, and says, “You send out information and ideas, and the most amazing pieces result! I learn so much from my students.”
The guild offers many ways to try your hand with clay and many find that it centres them. June loves the Kawartha Lakes area of Ontario, Canada, which she now calls home.
