Vallance Studio produces high-quality, modern, and sturdy stoneware with a focus on functional pieces.
Working from our home studio in Saanich, each piece is hand crafted, kiln fired, glazed in our homemade glazes and fired again to create a beautiful and durable finished product. Our collection ranges from plates, bowls, mugs, and platters, to more artistic pieces including wall plaques, pendants and ornaments.
Our functional items are all microwave and dishwasher safe.
David Vallance was born in Clinton, BC and moved to Victoria, BC at a young age. He was raised in his family’s production pottery studio, Vallance Pottery, and worked with his father, Bruce Vallance, for many years. After leaving the pottery business to pursue a career with BC Ferries, David has spent 9 years developing his role on the ships. Since retiring from the pottery business, Bruce has turned to his other long time interests of painting and drawing. David began to miss using this lifelong trade and the creativeness of pottery. With the support of his partner, Alisha, they transformed a backyard shed in to a studio; loading it full of shelving, a wheel, and a kiln. Vallance Studio was founded in December 2017 with the first kiln load finished just in time for Christmas presents.
