A third member of the Sudbury Basin Potters is Bert McCallum.
Bert is a retired miner living in Sudbury. Since he worked in the nickel mines for almost 40 years, he has a connection to Cobalt the mining town as well. He was born and raised in Gaspé, PQ and came to Sudbury when he was 19. He has been doing pottery for 10 years. His work includes food safe pieces from the wheel, hand built works, as well as Raku. He tells me that the 'earthy colours are his favourite as they match his personality'.
