Anyone who teaches knows that teaching and learning are reciprocal. And both can be immensely rewarding and maddening. Teaching ceramics is only partly about the how-tos: how to throw a cylinder, how to join slabs, how to use slips and glazes— all these tangibles we are so grounded in. But it is the intangibles, such as encouraging students to explore their ideas, to listen to their voices, to realize their vision, and then to question their outcomes, that often takes greater time and energy. In an article to be published in the Summer, 2014, issue of Studio Potter, I wrote about how the Tangible and Intangible intersect in teaching. As someone who has been teaching for over 25 years, I have had the pleasure of working with some wonderful students at The Maine College of Art. I added this page to my website to share some of their work.
