Lindsay Anderson studied art at the Balfour Technical School and pottery under Don Chester and
Helen Rogers at the University of Regina. He worked as a studio technical in the Ceramics
Department of the university from 1982 to 1990, and continued on to teach ceramics for the City
of Regina for two years. Since 2012, Anderson is an instructor at the Visual Arts Center of
Clarington in Bowmanville, Ontario.
Anderson’s works focus primarily on functional ware, with sculptural elements incorporated into
the pieces. The majority of his pottery is functional porcelain and hand built raku, where he uses
a combination of underglaze, slips, metallic luster and crackle glazes.
Anderson has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions nationally and international,
and his work is included in several private and public collections in Canada. His distinctive work
has received numerous awards throughout his career. Anderson lives in Cobourg, Ontario.
