Shaz Ball

Photo of Shaz BallShaz, a clay artist and stone sculptor now residing in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia was raised in rural Alberta. Playing in the mud as a child is her first memory of working with the earth. In 1996 when introduced to working with clay she was immediately hooked. Stone carving followed.

Her eclectic interests, energetic personality and happy disposition are revealed in the diversification and originality of her art. The need to explore and expand as an artist leads Shaz on a constantly evolving path. Living in the Kingdom of Tonga for five years assisted Shaz in expressing the freedom of uninhibited dance and acceptance of self in her art. Music, body, dance, and life are her inspiration for her current works.

Shaz has exhibited her works in many group and solo exhibitions throughout BC and Alberta. She is the current president of Okanagan Potters Association, and a member of the Kelowna Sculptors Network Society. Her marble sculpture “Eternal Strength” carved in 2004 for the Kelowna Centennial Project “Connecting Links” was voted People's Choice.
