Narrative: Donated by daughter Shauna E. McLelland. This pottery collection was made by Ed Goodstein and Elizabeth Stuart in Grand Pre, Nova Scotia. The pair met in a pottery class in Washington DC, before relocating to Grand Pre. The pair each made their own style of pottery but sold them together. Goodstein came to pottery later in life after retiring from a US Federal Government job, while Stuart always had sold pottery under her maiden name - focusing on making things for everyday use! Objects from this collection were from the estate of Lynn McLelland.
