Commentaires : The Battery is an historic community built into the cliffs of the Narrows in St. John's harbour. Working in her Blue Moon Pottery studio located there, Isabella St. John is able to look to the west at a panoramic view of the city, the waterfront and the harbour, and to the east through the narrow harbour entrance to the Atlantic Ocean. It is a place that has informed and inspired her work for twenty-five years. During most of those years, St. John has been known throughout the province for her well-designed functional pottery. Lately, however, she has broadened the scope of her work to include more exploratory one-of-a-kind raku and stoneware vessels and sculptural forms. One of these pieces has recently been chosen for the Permanent Collection of the Burlington Art Museum in Ontario. St. John works with forms and decorative elements that speak eloquently of the land, and of the sea that surrounds it. Her 'Cod Table Setting' (1997), for example, addressed the decline of the traditional Newfoundland fishery. "The cod fishery once provided food for people the world over. Using twine and netting to impress the clay and printing the word for 'cod' in Russian, French, Spanish and English evokes the history of what was once the world's greatest fishery." Blue Moon Pottery's retail shop at 17 Outer Battery offers a wide selection of current work. Pottery from the studio is also available in selected craft shops, including the Craft Council Shop at Devon House, and at the Craft Council's Christmas Craft Fair.
