Paul Stewart Portrait

Paul Stewart first became interested in Pottery as a teenager after helping with his own father's pottery business. 35 years and thousands of handmade pots later, Paul is excited to be teaching at The Pottery's current location in the west end of Toronto and holding workshops for schools, social service workshops and businesses. 


Every time I walk into Paul’s studio I literally  feel the stress melting off my shoulders...


The best part - I make beautiful things for my home and my friends.  Paul helped me to fulfil a life long dream of being a potter!

The beginners class with Paul was a phenomenal experience, he was such a wonderful instructor, with a great sense of humour and genuine care for helping the students. We had a blast and can’t wait to see how the pieces turn out!

My wife and I have used our set of dishes from The Pottery every day for over 20 years and they still look like new. Excellent product!
