Daniela Petosa

Ceramic Artist Daniela Petosa’s uniquely framed works with tiles mounted on glass offer a fresh and contemporary take on interior design accents.

Her fascination with clay began in Mexico where she first learned traditional wheel techniques at Instituto Allende Art College. She went on to complete the Ceramics Program at Fleming College, Haliburton School of the Arts. She also completed courses at the Metchosin International School of the Arts, working with Les Manning and Katrina Chaytor.


Living in Tofino on the westernmost edge of Vancouver Island, Daniela is strongly influenced by the wild coastal landscape. Her high relief tiles capture the energy and movement created by tidal currents on the West Coast shoreline. Moving water, textured sand, wind, fog, floating seaweed, and birds in flight are some themes in her current collections. Her recurring tile patterns depict her passion for the serene flow and natural rhythm of the coastline.
