Joyful Yukon Pottery

and a funny black & white dog.

Hello! My name is Leighann Chalykoff.

Over the past few years I've been building a body of ceramic work inspired by my home, Yukon. I draw inspiration from the forest floor, the dancing aurora, the migrating swans, the wildflowers and the spectacular wild Yukon river. 

WHAT'S IMPORTANT? I have lived in the Yukon since 2005, and it has given me so much. It's important to me to give back to the community, so a portion of the proceeds from all my ceramic sales go to local charities. So far in 2020, I have been able to donate $1,000 to the Whitehorse Food Bank and the Yukon Humane Society with matching donations from Unorthodox Yukon (a truely amazing local craft retailer).

Yukon River

The river has always been a source of fascination for me, both beautiful and terrifying. It’s full of contradictions—its colours, its beauty, its wildness, and its danger.
