Matthew Krousey - I have more of this work in my cupboard than anything. An old college friend and great potter.
Birdie Boone- Appreciate the ceramic science and generosity of spirit in her in her work. She is the creek to my mountains.
Mike Helke - mid range stoneware, great colors and forms
Linda Arbuckle - an amazing teacher, great resource for low fire majolica information
