About ten years ago, Dan talked to several potters at a craft show on the East Coast, and his passion for working with ceramics was renewed. He kept saying, “I can do that!” He enrolled in a ceramic class at Glendale Community College and had the opportunity to study with Jim Spires a Master Potter in Winesburg, Ohio. Jim provided him with one-on-one training sessions for several months. For Dan, throwing on the wheel is relaxing, challenging and rewarding.
