Ceramics & Pottery

Functional to frivolous, fun to fabulous, our locally-made ceramics and pottery run the gamut.

Where to shop?

You’ll always find our best selection of ceramics & pottery at our Nanaimo gift shop. Shop online for a smaller, curated selection of ceramics & pottery.

What’s in store?

Our stock of pottery and ceramics changes very frequently, but you can count on us to always have a wide selection of mugs on hand.

Browse below for an idea of the unique treasures you could find!


Mugs are a customer favourite, and we always have many of them in stock. Crafted by several different ceramic artists, we have mugs in solid colours, mugs with images, and even mugs with inspiring (or cheeky!) messages.


Our selection of ceramic plates is available in both functional and funky styles. Some of these items feature images, such as owls, mushrooms, orcas, and bicycles.


Ceramic bowl options include serving bowls, noodle bowls, and smaller cereal bowls. Like our ceramic plates, some bowls feature images, while others show off beautiful two-colour glazes.

Ceramic Gifts

We carry a variety of ceramic wall plaques that feature pop icon portraits or slogans such as “Make Nanaimo Weirder” and “Cats and Naps”. Pax Urban Art also makes ceramic magnets using fun and funny words.


Krista of Fire Creatures makes wild and wonderful ceramic creatures, partly inspired by sea creatures, nature, and her imagination. These might not be for everyone, but those who ‘get it’ are avid collectors of her fantastical creations.
