Cori Sandler Pottery

Handmade Pottery that smiles back

I am a maker.  That’s what I do and what I am but …
that is not all I do and that is not all I am.

As a potter and someone who has built a following of amazing people, I get to say thank you, for helping others in a way that I know how to do. 

Use my platform for good.  Helping friends in times of need feels good – so it is as much an act of selfishness as it an act of help.  We only have each other in this world.

 What’s For Sale Cori?

I adore making pottery that makes your meals more memorable, more tasty, and way more enjoyable.

A Bit About Cori


“I take on the task of making functional pottery as a very serious responsibility. If you are to invest in having me join you and your family, and guests on a daily basis in your kitchens and dining rooms, I want you to really adore my pots, and know that I am honoured that you have chosen my pottery and I really am thrilled that my work brings you enjoyment.”

I have been a Studio potter and ceramic artist for over 30 years Along with being a potter I am also  ceramics instructor.

“Cori’s pottery is contemporary, fun and whimsical, mixing hues and textures from the ocean, rain forests and coastal mountains.”

Take a  look at what’s  available in my web-shop and hey, Come join a pottery class if you’re local to the Comox Valley.

“My heart sings when I’m making pottery”.


Take a Class!

Clay Classes in Person have been suspended until futher notice

“Cori’s Clay Class
is my favourite 3 hours of my week. Honestly!”

Reclaim your hands, rediscover your inner artist.

Have you always wanted to take pottery lessons?

Let me share with you my enthusiasm about the clay’s possibilities here in my potter’s studio. In my pottery class, you’ll learn about traditional methods of hand building,  pinching, coiling and various slab techniques.

You’ll get caught up in the excitement of the potter’s wheel.  It’s definitely hypnotic.
I’ll guide you through the process of decorating and glazing your work.

You will be making pots that you can keep and gift away to friends and family.


5 students maximum/class
Lots of individual attention

Wheel and Hand Building – Basic – Intermediate

Surface Design and Application

Workshops and Guest Artists

Hit me up if you’ve seen my instructional videos on social… and you’re interested in having me come to your guild or club or conference as a presenter or workshop artist.

I can structure 1, 2 or 3 day hands on workshops or I can do a lecture/demo style workshop covering a skill set including throwing, altering, and decorating a variety of different forms.

I love sharing what I have learned over 30+ years of making pots.  I know how much I have enjoyed workshops by various potters over my 30 years as a maker.  I find that I always walk away with something new, a way of looking at making that is different than I have been looking at my work, an aha moment is inevitable. 

My goal is to make sure everyone leaves my workshops with something they can take away and use in their own making. 

My enthusiasm is contageous. Be forwarned!



Private & Group Events

Are you a part of a work team, or have a group of friends you want to do something different with, or have a partner and want a different kind of a date night? Well… Have you ever thought of ‘Wheel and Wine”

Its’s great fun to come our for an evening/daytime (depending on your schedule) and have a ONE TIME ONLY studio experience.
It’s fun for couples, and for groups of friends alike.

Each of you will make your own unique piece of pottery, such as a mug or wine cup or bowl…

You can try the potters wheel and see what that feels like. ( I can tell you, it’s amazing!)

4 person minimum to book it. – so get some friends together and let’s get messy!

Happy Students


OMG – It’s just the best feeling, working with clay.  I love that I can take wet moist clay and put in on the potters’ wheel and all of a sudden… as if by magic, I have made a bowl, or a mug, or… whatever I want to make.  It’s hypnotic.

Cori is an amazing teacher who really believes in all her students and works with us individually to help us find our inner artist.
