 Johnathan Bullock Pottery

Johnathan Bullock is a modern day potter but his work could easily have graced the tables of King Arthur.

There is an ancient quality to the hand made work. Carved spirals adorn the rims of plates. Undulating striations gently wrap around the sides of vessels. Jewel-tone glazes of blue, rose, and green are set off by a patina of aged bronze. Johnathan's pottery is dramatic and compelling. It vibrates with the vigour of the artist.

 Muskoka Store

 The history of The Muskoka Store is steeped in tradition. It was founded in 1979 by cottager and windsurfing fanatic Bruce Clark, thanks to a clever tip from his mother Barb. During a typical Friday drive from the city Barb spotted a small gourmet food shop for rent on Highway 11 and told Bruce it would be a perfect fixed location for his van based windsurfing sales business. Without hesitation, Bruce and Nancy took his mothers advice and moved the contents of his van into the shop. The Muskoka Store, originally named Muskoka Windsurfing, was born.

Since the gourmet food shop transformation in 79, The Muskoka Store has evolved into a true cottage outfitter with over 45 000 square feet of items carefully chosen to enhance Muskoka traditions both historical and current.

 Studio Sofia

The challenging nature & historical significance of true fresco painting, with it's unique & luminous quality, has captivated me for over 20 years! I often combine a variety of materials, using odd, found & antique objects to compliment the work in the creation of pieces that are truly one of a kind. I hope you enjoy browsing the many examples of my work, both fresco and oils, on this site.

After graduating with honors from the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, I studied fresco painting & restoration in Florence, Italy, mentored by professor & master restorer, Lorenzo Casamenti.
