Pottery Marks of Prince Edward Island - New London Village Pottery - Christine Campbell

The potter with the longest connection to New London Village Pottery, beside the founder, Daphne Large, is Christine Campbell. Christine began work as a summer sales clerk while attending school and would bicycle to work from Kensington, being too young to hold a driver's license.

Pottery became her passion and she eventually trained with Daphne as a potter. A quick learner, she was able to advance her skill level through self-instruction and practice, and returned to Village Pottery as a studio potter, once her three sons were old enough for her to work full time.

Typically her work is signed with "Village Pottery - PEI - ACC" (being her initials).
