Mynthia McDaniel is a Ceramic artist based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in both Printmaking and Ceramics and has exhibited both locally and internationally.
Mynthia strives to make inviting and functional forms, hoping to make daily rituals more enjoyable. She is conscious of how the work will feel in someone's hands, how they will use, and hold it. Mynthia often leaves some of the clay bare on the outsides of the pot, without glaze, which creates ridges and bumps, different textures for the viewer. She often alters her wheel thrown pieces to create pleasing lines throughout the forms.
Her main passion after pottery is travel, and whenever possible she will find a way to combine the two. Most recently she completed a two month residency at the Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park in Japan, and a short residency at the Cesky Porcelán factory in the Czech Republic.
