Pottery Marks of Prince Edward Island - Maxine Stanfield Pottery

Maxine Stanfield was a student at Holland College School of Visual Arts in Charlottetown in the early 1970's who developed a strong interest in the sculptural aspects of clay. She studied with both Barry Jeeves and Ron Arvidson.

Eventually painting became her dominant visual art form and she became well known on PEI for her abstract work.

Maxine relocated to Nanaimo, British Columbia in the 1990's and resumed using her maiden name of Elliot.
She signed her sculptural work - Maxine with PEI and the year.

This piece was thought to be made while she was living in Prince Rupert, B.C.
