Porter Halyburton

I have always loved doing things with my hands and over my lifetime I have worked in many different art and craft forms.  It is especially gratifying to me to make something that is not only beautiful but useful as well.  That is what i find so compelling and fulfilling about ceramics.  There is so much to learn, so many different ways to make it, and yet there is still room for innovation to produce work that is distinctively your own, but it builds upon the many thousands of years that pottery has been made.

Potters are such wonderful people and always are willing to give assistance to beginners, share their own techniques and help each other in so many ways.

Mud people are simply the best!
