ardith one was established in 1971 by Bev (Ardith) and Bill Don with the prime objective of offering quality, functional pottery at affordable prices. Bill (former accountant) and Bev (banker) both felt the entre-preneurial pull to do something different back in 1970 when they first met. The result was ardith one, Canadian Pottery & Crafts.
We have represented hundreds of potters over our 48 years of business and we now currently represent over 60 artisans in our 1,000 square foot space in the heart Yonge Lawrence Village.
Considered to be the definitive pottery shop, ardith one has become a landmark in the specialized field of Canadian handcrafted pottery. Hundreds of couples have registered for weddings, thousands of mugs have sold and tens of thousands of boxes have been gift wrapped!
It has been our greatest pleasure to come into the store everyday and to enjoy the huge variety of pottery and other crafts. Neither one of us has ever not wanted to go into work. The good relationships with our artisans and customers make the atmosphere in the store very inviting. Do come in and visit us.
When you think pottery...think ardith one.
