Mary Lazier
Red Hen Pottery
RR#3 Mansfield, L0N 1M0

Mary started making pottery in 1972, ran Spiral Pottery in the east end of Toronto for 10 years, renting space to potters, supplying classes special workshops and shows. For the next ten years, her focus was handbuilt porcelain tableware, and now it’s stoneware mermaids for the garden.

"I have always thought that ceramic urns make a more personal and thoughtful place for cremated remains. I can make them big or small, or one for each member of the family."

‘Celtic Knot Pot'
handbuilt porcelain with thrown lid

‘Love Lace’ (set of three)
handbuilt porclain with thrown lid
$200 each

This jar has a lace pattern, an interesting lid which is intended to be permanently affixed after the ashes have been added. The lid‘s spiral design recognizes the flow of life from beginning to end, and a bird represents our release into eternity.
The smaller versions of the first jar, are intended so that two or more people in the same family can have remains in a matching container.


Swim Free’
handbuilt porcelain with thrown lid.

This jar will be a third size with a different pattern, fish will be part of the design. The concept is to provide a dignified, beautiful jar which will look nice in any décor. It could have the name of the deceased, or even a signature of the person, if a sample is available.
