David McKenzie

David McKenzie has been working with clay in the Ottawa area since 1974, the Gatineau Hills since 1979 and in the village of Wakefield since 1990 (with his partner Maureen Marcotte). Previously having shown his work in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto it can now mostly be seen at Galerie McKenzie Marcotte in Wakefield. His work in high-fired porcelain and stoneware is known for its intensely painted surfaces using a rich palette of colours and texures. A whimsical sense of design and a lyrical drawing line infuse each unique piece with warmth and intimacy.
