As my journey continues rediscovering myself as a pottery, I naturally am drawn to my mountains, rivers and mushrooms and wheat fields. 

All these pieces are made in small batches and each are unique in their own way. 

Handmade and wheel thrown in the small community of Bowness in Calgary next to the Bow River and in the  foothills of the Rocky Mountains. 

A portion of every purchase goes towards supporting organizations like CKUA radio, Alberta White Water Association, Alberta Wild Life, The Association Of Bow Valley Area Rock Climbers and and dozens of local charities and fundraisers in our community.

Melba Seto began pottery in 2010 and within her first year spent over 1000hrs learning the craft.  She began to pursue a dream becoming a professional potter and instructor. Due to unfortunate circumstances her dream to open a studio and continue her passion for teaching others was put on the back burner each time the dream got close to being actualized. 

After launching Bowness Soapworks in 2020 and staring to build her dream again to open the pottery studio, it was finally made possible this year- 2023. 

These limited pieces not only symbolize a long painful journey of chasing your dreams, but the tenacity and determination of a human can render new beginnings. 

The pieces are imperfect as is the process to get to this point. From Melba’s hands to your home- may the imperfections remind you that dreams though sometimes may take a turn- are always possible if you keep trying.

As all pieces are handcrafted, there may be slight variations in terms of size and color compared to the photos and between the different pieces in the same series.
