Pottery Marks of Prince Edward Island - Pieter Ijsselstein - White Gables at Hope River

Pieter Ijsselstein produced a line of items that incorporated his flock of hens in the decorating process. The video of his flock at work tells the story of  Hen Pecked Pottery. The hens are no longer part of the operation as Pieter's pottery has evolved.

Operating an art and craft studio in Hope River, PEI with his wife Geraldine who is a painter and weaver - the combined family efforts operate under the name White Gables at Hope River.

In 2018 his potter's mark included the first two initials of his surname ij as well as PEI.
