"Seeing my pieces presented on the digital platform, and then watching them find new homes, was exciting and was confirmation that I am on the right path with my ceramic practice... It wasn't just a sale, it was also a great way to learn about branding, art photography, pricing, and how to position my art for the Calgary market."

- Vivian Smith, BFA graduate 2023
