One of these jars will be on display (finished) at the NCECA sponsored show celebrating past and present ceramicists who received BFA’s from UW-Stout and the professors that inspired us all, Kate Maury ( @katemaury ) and Geoff Wheeler. I took my first ceramics class during the last semester of my junior year, with Geoff. Though it was the most I’d struggled with art since I was a kid, I was drawn to process in its entirety. One class led to many more, where Kate taught me the work ethic to refine my skills. I still hear her words to this day while I make. I am forever grateful for these two coming into my life when they did. They were mentors, friends and at times even felt like family. I owe so much of the joy in my life to them and there aren’t enough words to express my appreciation. This show is a sort of love letter to these two educators, on behalf of the many artists they’ve inspired. Thank you for your time, knowledge, and care. You’ve created a little mid western gem to nurture ceramic artists. I love you both. .
I will post info for the show alter this week!
