Renate Min-oo

Hamilton, ON

Renate came to Canada from Germany in 1986. Already a skilled needle worker, she was introduced to quilting in Dundas.  Now an award winning textile artist, she eventually taught quilting at the Dundas Valley School of Art.  Her graphic work is characterized by geometric form, colour, and contrast using various fabrics to create original designs.  Renate also spent many years working in ceramics, primarily hand-building her pieces using slabs and coils before Raku firing them.  She regularly exhibited her pieces at the Fusion show in Toronto, as well as at the Hamilton Potter’s Guild show and sale.  She has been included in numerous other group exhibitions including the Hamilton and Region Potter’s Guild Biennial Exhibition, and the Juried Designer Craft Show at the Carnegie Gallery.   She has received numerous awards for both her textile arts and her pottery.
