Wayne Ngan


Wayne Ngan was a potter, painter, and educator based on Hornby Island, Canada. Ngan’s ceramics practice reflected influences of both historical and contemporary modes of making. He drew inspiration from the past and his surroundings to create works that hint at historical aesthetics but convey a voice that is uniquely his own. His blend of technical mastery and experimental methodology resulted in pottery that is both functional and elegant.
