Pat Bennett owns and operates the Marquis of Dufferin Seaside Inn On the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia.  In her spare time, one of her passions is pottery.  She was inspired by two pieces she purchased in British Columbia in 2003.  A Saskatchewan transplant to Nova Scotia, Pat took a hand building class in Saskatoon.  In 2008, she took a tile making class at NSDCC, Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council.  She found out that is it is just as important to find out what you don’t like as what you like.

Pat slab builds her pieces.  When she attempted to duplicate the purchased pieces, she discovered the geometric shapes were not her forms.  Instead, with the ocean at her doorstep, she takes the forms from nature.

Pat makes ikebana flower holders.  From May to October, she can find blooms or stems on her walks or in her garden, to display in her creations on the restaurant tables.  She sells the ikebana flower holders and her other creations in her gift shop.
