When I was a young lad, just discovering that there was a world where people made a living working with clay, there were very few ‘role models’ for life outside of Academia. John Glick was one of the very few that I was aware of back in the 70’s and he continues to make wonderful pots with distinctive character today. When I first started writing this blog he contacted me out of the blue to compliment me on my work. That was a big deal for me…and a completely random act of kindness!
I just bought this bowl of his on EBAY and I’m really happy to be able to hold it in my hands and imagine something green in it. I’m on a cabbage kick at the moment.
Other potters that I knew back then: Cynthia Bringle (I took a workshop with her in 1976!), Dave Shaner and Byron Temple. Who else?
