The affinities between the ceramic and plant world have been well documented throughout the centuries. Ceramic Botanica celebrates those connections with a diverse collection of ceramic art submitted by BC artists whose artwork either mimics or supports floral forms and arrangements.

Alongside the collection of ceramics is a new painting series by Maple Ridge artist, Tammy Routley. Many of these beguiling pictures feature a playful collection of insects and other creatures, clearly revelling in the nurturing and protective world of plants.
