A group of thirteen, mid-career ceramic and glass artists met regularly at the studio of Susan Low-Beer in Toronto between September 2018 and June 2019. At each meeting, the artists presented works-in-process and together the group analyzed artistic choices, shared ideas and concerns, and questioned the very foundations of one’s craft. Trust was built and relationships were developed. The mentorship process allowed for a place of safety to develop, and through that, a sense of community evolved. By creating an atmosphere rich and warmth, goodwill, and non-judgment, the artists were able to relax into the mentoring process and air doubts, absorb suggested solutions, let diverse metaphors flourish, and mature into a collaborative exchange.
