Allison Skinner loves and appreciates her Canadian artisans so much that her Distill boutique in Stratford is a carefully curated homage to their very many talents. Allison’s approach to what she calls slow fashion is ethically sourced and made. And each piece makes a statement all on its own. And I want to tell you that the jewelry is lovely. But I find myself drawn to one particular artisan and that’s Mikel Grant. She works with yellow and rose gold and silver but she combines it with pearls and I just love that. And I am wearing a piece by Marijke Bouchier and it’s pretty gorgeous too. So it turns out that Allison is a great potter herself and her work is displayed amongst all the other beautiful beautiful pieces of pottery that you see here. And the pieces are sophisticated. They’re fine and they are very usable. So it turns out that form and function come together really beautifully in Distill gallery.
