Long time local and mountain enthusiast, Vincent Massey built his home and pottery studio on the slopes of Rainbow Mountain in 1985. He lives there with his wife, Cheryl Massey, who is a basket weaver and fellow ski lover.
Vincent graduated from Farnham Art College in the U.K., where he specialized in the traditional English and Japanese methods of stoneware, including firing techniques of wood and salt. Further apprenticeships with potters in England and Canada helped establish him as a professional artist.
