Ineke pottery displays botanical motifs. Pieces are often hand-turned with artisan decoration of applied flowers (dogwood), in studio-pottery style. Ineke pottery was made for specific places or events and many pieces were made for souvenir and gift shops, such as Mattick’s Farm on Cordova Bay Rd, Victoria, BC; Victoria’s Butchart Gardens, the Malahat Chalet and for shops on the BC Ferries. Pieces could be found in shops across western Canada.
