“Those who have not the warm, invigorating Chinook winds of this country, cannot well comprehend what a blessing they are. The icy clutch of winter is lessened, the earth throws off its winding sheet of snow. Humanity ventures forth to inhale the balmy spring like air. Animated nature rejoices.” (1900–Calgary weekly Herald)

Along the Eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains, the Chinook winds are a welcome and well-known friend of locals. These warm winds can melt snow, thaw the frozen ground, and warm the hearts of folks who have been locked inside the grasp of a long winter. “Chinook Pottery” represents the winds of change throughout our lives and the next generation of growth in our family. We invite you to peruse our offerings and hope you will find the warmth, beauty, and connection to nature that we invest in everything we create.
