Expanding Opportunity for Saskatchewan’s Ceramics Scene

The closure of the University of Regina’s College Campus Extension Program in 2015 left many ceramic artists without a studio to produce their commercial work. That’s when Jay Kimball recognized an opportunity to fill the gap.



Kimball officially opened Silt Studio in March 2019, creating a space for both the professional and amateur ceramics community in Regina. Artists can purchase studio memberships to produce their work, and newbies can dip their toes into ceramics through lessons and date night events. With a community focus in mind, all skill levels are welcome at Silt.


“Creative Saskatchewan has been a funding partner in my practice for several years. I’ve come to them with some maybe risky ideas, working with niche markets, and luckily the jurors got behind those ideas and were able to send some dollars towards the project, and made the project happen in many ways.”
-Jay Kimball, ceramic artist and owner of Silt Studio


Most recently, Creative Saskatchewan has invested in Silt Studio through the Market and Export Development Grant. With connections already established on the east coast, Silt Studio plans to expand their market to the west coast and into the United States. A strong marketing plan to increase awareness, studio traffic, and retail commissions, propelled with a Creative Saskatchewan investment, will move Silt Studio one step closer to becoming what Jay describes as “a center for ceramic excellence in Canada.”
