More About the Exhibition

This display is made possible through the generous donation of Mrs Margaret Vincent who worked in the McPherson Library, here at the University of Victoria, for approximately 20 years. She began accumulating these incredibly diverse ceramic ‘specimens’ from the Lorenzen mushroom collection during her frequent visits to their pottery studio in Nova Scotia.
