After being a public school teacher for 30 years and closing in on 60 years my daughter convinced me to take a pottery wheel class.  “over the hill” refers to the timing of this endeavor rather than the topography of my studio.  In fact my studio is in the basement of my home in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.  The thing I enjoy most about making pottery is experimenting with shapes, colors, glazes, and materials.
