I have one or your wonderful flower vases, and a fine looking gentleman he is! I also have a “gentlefolk” figurine. I have been enjoying both for decades and am thanking you again for sharing your talent. Now i see you are painting! They are beautiful! Be well and continue your wonderful artistic journey!

I absolutely love your gentlefolk! I am from Surrey and consider myself very lucky every time I come across one. My most recent one was found in the mission thrift store. Currently I have 5 in my collection! I hope you are doing well and continue to do art. If you'd consider doing another gentlefolk please let me know how much the commission would cost! Farewell!

Love them as much today as I did when I purchased them 30+ years ago

Have about seven pieces. What appears to be Gandalf holding your address and a monk oil lamp. Others are smaller goblin like figures. Wouldn’t part with them. Great imagination. All the best, Roy.

My Uncle collected 6 of your gentlefolk pieces and I've always loved him. Sadly he passed away recently and I inherited the pieces.i SO enjoy them everyday as they sit in a place of prominence on my mantle. Thank you so much for these whimsical creatures. Hope this finds you well. Cheers! Erica

Sorry to hear that you don't make the gentlefolk any longer. I have collected quite a few over the years, they were a joy to receive a new one every Christmas and birthday from my husband. I just love them the details are amazing.

Got 'gentlefolk' in the 80's Vancouver as a gift but as of late sadly left only with the worn card with written "Windridge House Pottery N. Vancouver, B.C. Canada". Must be in a box somewhere.

My husband found one of your "gentlefolk" a young lady she has been sitting on my mantel for some time now and today I thought I would check once again to see if I could find any information All I found today was a picture of a group of "gentlefolk" although it gave me insight to her it sadden me as well! since I now know that her flowers are missing I will try my best to replace them as I believe that is what brought the smile to her face in the first place! thank you for allowing me to enjoy your splendid art you area true Canadian treasure.

Lucky me, I spotted this little clay wizard telling me I should take him home. I picked him up, had a lively conversation in my head, and just couldn't put him back on the Goodwill shelf that I found him on. So decades after he was crafted he has settled himself in my garden. (sorry Donna) Nevermore to roam unless it's late at night and Im not looking. :)

I have and still admire a "Gentel Folk" gentleman, too bad I can't find another to keep him "company"

Dear Mr. Perkins, I have been trying to research the "Gentlefolk" clay figurines as I have quite a collection. I have been making myself aware of your paintings, but I sure wish I could fine a cataloge of your figurines and their names. Sincerely, Kelly. I also live in Delta.

I have been collecting the "friendly folk" for some years now and find most of it in Thrift stores. I did purchace my first piece new. I would like some history on these "folk". They have come to describe me. I, too, live in Delta. Thank you.

I came across your guestbook while looking to replace a beloved Gentlefolk dragon that broke during a move. I have 21 pieces including one with your plaque. Love your Gentlefolk series. Mine are a little worse for wear since I moved a lot in the Canadian Forces. Now that I am retired they still hold a a spot on display. Thank you.

I love your White Rock series, I have worked on Marine Dr. for over twenty years, you have really captured the spirit, the unique feel of the waterfront.What ever happened to windridge house ? I was lucky enough to aquire a few gentlefolk over the years, but could never find them again. I would be delighted to hear that somehow there were some of the gentlefolk pieces still available somehow. They are one of the few pieces of clay art that I have seen over the years to capture the "anima" of the clay itself. Anyway, great work, take care.

Hope all is well. Copies of your paintings, Cathedral Grove Forest and Cascading light at Tamahi River, hang in our dining room and last night our good friends were admiring them. They told me of your website.
