Pike Studios Art and Craft Shop and Fine Craft Studios are located 25 minutes south of Calgary in the town of High River.  Both Bob and Connie started working with clay in 1971 and have been together as a team since 1978. Over the years they have used well over 1/4 million pounds of clay (111,000 k) making numerous styles of functional stoneware and porcelain pottery, hand-made custom tiles, lamps and architectural murals. Due to environmental sensitivities, Bob now works in metal, making gates, Art Boxes, tables and assorted architectural accents. Their work has been recognized by the Alberta Art Foundation and their pieces have been purchased by customers from the far reaches of the world.
 The Pikes' gallery and studio is quite a place to visit and anyone is sure to walk out knowing much more about working with clay or metal and the creative process in general. Bob and Connie will show you around their studios and explain how basic materials can be transformed into a work of art or a utilitarian piece of pottery to use in your home. They also give tours to groups by appointment. Pike Studios is a working studio and the gallery is open anytime they are there working which is most everyday. You are advised to phone the day before if you plan to come to make sure they will be there to accommodate you.
To find the studio, just take the High River turn off from HWY #2 coming south from Calgary, you will be going west on 12th Ave. Then turn right on 1st Street SE (the first turn past Home Hardware).
