It Runs in the Family
I became interested in ceramics when I visited my grandfather, a potter in Pensacola, FL. He let us throw our own pots and taught us how to make "pinch" pots. Although we were only there for a short visit, he sent us our pots in the mail after he fired them. I didn't know it at the time, but he is an award-winning potter in the Gulf states and he makes his own glazes. The picture above is an example of his work, with green-blue glazing.
