Each year we open up a large part of our gallery to our students. Jill and I view this as a time to honor them, applaud their accomplishments, and just say “Thank you”.
Student Work…Clockwise from Top Left: Bobby McAlexander, Lesley Rickman, Debi Sullivan, and David Blackwood.
Our students come from all walks of life. Some are new parents, some are grandparents. Some are blowing off steam from the pressures of a new career, while others are building new steam after retirement. We have mommas, teachers, nurses, engineers, doctors, beauticians, carpenters, and railroaders. We have salesmen, seamstresses, dietitians, HR people, and a school principal. All of these folks have carved out a portion of their lives and dedicated it to learning the art of handmade pottery, and we think that’s worth cheering.
