Welcome to the website of Molly Magid and Mission Clay Works.
Molly fell in love with clay many years ago in high school. Her formal education took her in different artistic directions and she received a BFA (Honors) in Printmaking and Photography from Emily Carr in 1995.
But clay was her first love and in 1998 she returned to pottery, often combining her printmaking and photographic techniques in her work.
At present , Molly works on her pottery in her downtown studio in Mission, B.C. She likes to throw functional ware as well as create larger hand-built sculptural pieces.

“I love to explore different combinations of forms, techniques, textures and designs in each piece. I am interested in contrasts between hard and soft, textured and smooth surfaces, as well as playing with the idea of inflating and deflating the form during construction. I then use slips, stains and glazes to enhance or emphasize these contrasts."

Molly is a current member of the Delta, Fraser Valley and B.C. Potters Guilds.
She has extensive experience teaching a wide range of Art and Craft techniques to elderly, disabled, adults and children in a variety of therapeutic settings. She is the former Manager, Therapeutic Programs and Volunteer Services, for George Derby Centre, a continuing care residence for Veterans of the Armed Forces. In her studio, Molly teaches classes to both adults, children and students with special needs. Her teaching expertise lies in pottery, as well as print making techniques on clay, paper and fabric.
