Dan Anderson - Cousins in Clay

Dan Anderson honored clay cousin for 
"Cousins in Clay" at Bulldog Pottery Seagrove, NC

Dan Anderson taught for 32 years at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and retired from teaching in 2002 to become a full-time studio potter. Anderson’s pots combine his love of architectural shapes and his fascination for decal illustrations with his sparky sense of humor.  He finds his ceramics a joy to make and when he is finished with the final decal firing... he admits, there is nothing like them in the whole wide world.

We are excited to meet Dan and spend the weekend with him and his pots.  Brian Jones interviewed Dan Anderson last year on the "Jonescast" podcast.  Listening to the Dan Anderson interview on the Jonescast is a fun way to get to know Dan.  While you are there check out some of the other interviews as well.  

Dan will demonstrate on Sunday, June 1, 1:30 – 2:30pm and talk about his experiences as a potter and teacher.
