Established in 2000 the Jonathon Bancroft-Snell Gallery has evolved into a Mecca for ceramic collectors. The gallery showcases the talents of over 125 of Canada’s top ceramic artists from all over Canada. Our commitment is to provide a comprehensive nation-wide representation of Canadian ceramics. We also showcase the work of woodturner Doug Magrath, Fibre artist Nancy Latchford, Bronze sculptor George Shadford, as well as a selection of Canada's leading silversmiths

The unique characteristics of the gallery are:

Size:The gallery is 4,500 square feet

Inventory:The gallery has on display the largest selection of contemporary Canadian ceramics in Canada.

Exhibitions:Each year the gallery hosts a variety of exhibitions held in our private exhibition hall. The exhibitions range from solo exhibitions to group exhibitions all with a specific theme culminating every five years in “Matter of Clay”, our largest national exhibition. Matter of Clay III in 2011 featured the work of over 100 artists.

A unique aspect of our gallery is showcasing not only major exhibition pieces but also the ‘repeat’ work by which many artists earn their living.

Jonathon’s is a destination for museum directors, curators and connoisseurs as well as the person looking for that special mug or teapot. At the gallery you will find clay for all reasons and a price range to suit every pocket.

  • Fantastic Gallery. The owner, Jonathon and his gallery manager are both informative, passionate people who make every person feel welcome. The art within the gallery is Canadian works of (predominantly) ceramic art. It was a fascinating experience to view what artists were capable of creating, ranging from surrealist statues to contemporary figures. A highly recommended visit for anyone within London who appreciates Canadian craftsmanship at its finest.
