I am a 34 year old Air Force veteran. Born in Ohio, lived a lot of places, and returned to Cleveland after the service. I started going to school on the G.I. Bill and took a pottery class as a break from all of my other math and science courses... and fell in love with it. After getting past the initial frustration of learning the pottery wheel, it has become one of the most calming and therapeutic things I can do for myself.
I eventually graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree in biology, but continue to do pottery as hobby.
