Although I’ve always been artistic, I’ve not had much formal education in ceramics. My professional training is in family therapy. I started doing pottery to balance the stress of working with dysfunctional families.  I am mostly self-taught in ceramics and as a result I have followed some unusual pathways like single firing, cone 10 oxidation glaze making, waste vegetable oil firing and colored clay millefiori techniques.  I’ve read lots of books and magazines and websites about pottery over the years. Much of my education as a ceramic artist has come through trial and error. I’m always curious to try a new technique or a new approach. Even after 30 years of pottery making, I’m still curious. The colored clay work that I’m doing now seems to have unlimited possibilities and I will probably be exploring it for a long time to come. Colored clay fascinates me. I took a short, beginning workshop In colored clay techniques nine years ago and I knew immediately that I had found “my thing.“ I have been rapidly developing my techniques since then. Colored clay offers unique visual possibilities of color, detail, pattern, image creation and abstract design that are unavailable from any other ceramic technique. It’s psychedelic! I love that word. It’s like a new art-form, outside the traditional boundaries of ceramic techniques. I’ve always been an “outside the box“ kind of guy. I’ve never fit into any traditional mold. I’m blessed and cursed with a restless spirit. I always want to discover something new. Colored clay allows me to do this. Each new design I create opens up a whole new world of possibilities.

Worth It

Dean does an excellent job teaching & this video is worth every penny. I'm an engineer by training and like to know why things work or don't work, and Dean covers that. I do have a couple of questions not covered though: 1. How are the backs glazed and/or how do you put feet on. 2. What is the roller method mentioned for curved pieces? I'd like to see that covered or a class on it.

Love colored clay

I absolutely love working with colored clay. I really enjoyed watching Dean make patterns and push the colored patterns to make a cool form. I loved his tutorial. It was so much fun to watch and gave me so many new ideas to try.
