I would head down to Granville Island, which is a pottery Mecca in Vancouver. There are a few studios and shops there. Ask around and see if there are any co-operative studios or craft shops that would fire your pieces. Great work, by the way.

I can not help you find a place to fire but I will pray that you do. Your work is absolutely stunning and breath taking, God bless you.

This is spectacular. It reminds me of the 16th century Iznik pottery. I am happy to see this kind of work is still being done. You know how to handle a brush, bravo!

Try asking around local ceramic artists and also colleges/universities, with work as good as yours I doubt you will have any trouble convincing people to help you fire it.

Hello .... I just wanted to add my admiring comments about your lovely work. My brother lived in Turkey for some years and I have very fond memories of the exquisite ceramics we found there. As far as sharing your work is concerned, you can add photos to your gallery so we can see more lovely stuff

Good luck with your search and I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful work
