WHO WE ARE
We are Black & Smith
Jesse Black: a carpenter and sustainable agriculture advocate
Emma Smith: a ceramic artist and art collector
In the centre of a small village called Jerseyville, you'll find our commercial gallery and lifestyle shop in the original general store from the 1800s.
After the store was left empty for over 20 years, we opened our shop doors in 2015 as a modern general store that specialized in quality handmade objects. We started with our house made pottery and a small collection of locally produced gifts and stationary. We have since expanded to carry work by over 60 Canadian artists, from coast to coast. Along with our regular collection of thoughtfully made goods, we hold seasonal exhibitions that highlight themed collections, new artists, featured works and our country's top makers.
At Black & Smith we are passionate for carefully curating beautiful and useful objects to be used and cherished in your home.
We believe in creating a warm and welcoming retail experience, where you can explore and support the works of emerging and established artists, small business owners, shopkeepers, and makers across Canada.
Attached to our shop is our pottery studio and workshop.
Our finely crafted furniture and tableware are made in house.
