  “He who receives a benefit with gratitude
repays the first installment on his debt.”

Marcus Annaeus Seneca


Where would we be, had it not been for our teachers? That small handful of people in our lives who set the stage for discovery, education, and immersion into the greater world beyond the orbits of home and family. For me, the answer to that question is abundantly clear. Were it not for my teachers, I would have neither discovered nor embarked on this journey into the world of Ceramics. I'd like to take the opportunity that these pages have to offer to acknowledge my profound gratitude to those who paved the path before me, and to tell a little of their stories as well.
