Meeting Times

  • Tuesday 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM


John's primary focus is on wheel throwing, but hand-building, slab work, and extruder skills are also offered.  All skill levels are taught with the aim of personal improvement.  Beginners will be shown basic techniques and forms such as cylinders and bowls.  Students with intermediate skills will explore methods to improve and expand their clay experiences, such as large forms, multiple part pieces, handles, and surface techniques. Glaze application will be demonstrated including the use of the spray booth.

John has a BA in Television Production and Marketing from Univ. WI-Madison. He has been a hobby potter since 1980, a teacher at Wesleyan Potters since 1994, and a Wesleyan Potters Key Member since 2013.
