About Us (Copy)

Bruce and Jan Dynes have been supporting and promoting the work of local artists for over 40 years.

The vision for The Clay Trade was inspired by the history of clay in our area and the desire to promote the potters the community has nurtured.

The Clay Trade, nestled in the heart of downtown Medicine Hat, opened in  September 2009. The Clay Trade continues to showcase the works of over fifteen potters. These potters create unique, one-of-a-kind pieces because they love to spend time in the studio and throw clay, relishing in their creative process. Our potters love what they do and this is reflected in their willingness to try new ideas and techniques.

The Clay Trade is a unique retail shop for you to discover the pottery of the area and to find just the right gift for that special occasion.

Shop their curated collections online, or visit them at The Clay Trade at 628 2nd Street South East, Medicine Hat, Alberta.
