Wayne Ngan is one of Canada’s most distinguished potters. In 1983 he received the prestigious Saidye Bronfman Award as an outstanding Canadian craftsman. A collection of his work is on permanent display in the new Canadian Museum of Civilization in Ottawa. His pieces are frequently presented to visiting foreign dignitaries as official gifts from the Canadian government. Wayne Ngan’s pottery is recognized as embodying more so than any other Canadian potter the form and spirit of the great traditions of Far Eastern pottery: the shapes and forms of Japan and Korea and the simple elegance of China’s Sung Dynasty.
