Art isn’t just about making pots… It’s how you live. – Vincent Massey
Art and life are synonymous with the Masseys. Their home, built by Vincent in 1985, neighbours the gallery and pottery studio on the slopes of Rainbow Mountain adjacent to Whistler. Driftwood sculpture and firewood stored in intricate baskets on the porch illustrate the Masseys’ commitment to artistic living that extends beyond the gallery’s walls. “Most people don’t understand what goes into making a pot,” Vincent explained. “But having the studio and gallery next to each other, people get to see the whole picture as well as the lifestyle that goes along with it. I like to take time out to show them the process of how my pots are made.” Raising a family in the heart of Whistler, whether skiing or mountain biking, the raw elements of nature inspire and motivate the couple’s creative expressions.
