Creator(s): Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery

Alice Egan Hagen (1872-1972) is considered a pioneer of studio pottery in Nova Scotia. The craft revival was gaining momentum in other countries when Alice Hagen decided, in 1931, to learn to make pottery to teach it to others. She was then about 60 years old. This exhibit presents Alice Hagen's life through images of her china and pottery, paintings, notebooks, family photographs and other documents.
