Gallery of BC Ceramics information
The star of Granville Island's arts-and-crafts shops and the public face of the Potters Guild of BC, this excellent spot exhibits and sells the striking works of its member artists. You can pick up one-of-a-kind ceramic tankards or swirly painted soup bowls; the hot items are the cool ramen noodle cups, complete with holes for chopsticks. It's well-priced art for everyone.
The handmade honey pots (honey included) and unique mugs are ideal for local-made souvenirs at reasonable prices. There were some tempting puffer-fish-shaped teapots on our visit. Before you leave, peruse the corner gallery space with its ever-changing exhibits of eye-catching creations.
