Brother Thomas Bezanson was born in Halifax in 1929, and graduated in 1950 from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. He began working as a potter in 1953 and six years later entered the Benedictine Monastery in Weston, Vermont. He lived and worked in the monastery for twenty-five years but, feeling that his artistic freedom was limited, he left to become artist-in-residence in the community of Benedictine Sisters in Erie, Pennsylvania. Brother Thomas's simple forms are complemented by a vivid array of glazes, which he creates himself from natural materials.
