Robin Marie Hominiuk was born in Calgary, Alberta and grew up in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada). Trained in the field of accounting, she always knew that someday she would be a potter. After a series of classes in clay, she set up a studio at home and worked on her own as time allowed. It took a move to the United States in 1998 and the start of grade one for her young son to finally have the time to pursue a pottery career full time. Several master classes in ceramics, the building of a home studio and an invitation to participate in a wood firing changed the course of how she worked in clay. Her work is now fired in anagama kilns, typically firing 3-5 times per year.
A move to Seattle, a new studio in the making to work in, has given Robin a new momentum. She is excited to see how the transition from county living to Big city life will creep into her work…..stay tuned!

These are the words of wood firing, these are my words- they are the language of my art.
