Firuze Avci is a passionate self-taught Turkish ceramic artist based in Calgary, AB. Graduating in Sociology in 2016, she discovered her love for ceramics and decided to infuse her art with themes close to her heart, such as feminism, immigration, and empathy.
She practiced traditional pottery with master potters and then developed herself in techniques in ceramics, such as slip casting, mold making, glaze making, and sculpting. Through her pottery, she fearlessly expresses her beliefs and advocates for these meaningful concepts.
Now residing in Calgary, and a member of Alberta Potters Association, she seeks to expand her artistic horizons, collaborate with local artists, and engage with the cultural climate of the city. Firuze has established her own craft-focused workshop where she continues to create and produce her unique pieces.
