I love his work. Details to the creepy crawly of nature have become more emphasized in my life in deep south Texas since I am surrounded by lizards , turtles, and bugs.

I think just to watch him design something and bring it to fruition would be instructive, I really doubt he would learn anything from me, I don't think I would volunteer anything anyhow!
Many of his buildings started as sculptures that he made, and he has also designed and made ceramics, which are on his site.
His sense of line, shape and form is tremendous, I think.
Plus, he can work on many scales and the results are satisfying. He can work on a personal scale, as in his ceramics and sculptures, he can work on a group scale, as in his stage sets for the NYC ballet, or, on a grand and public scale in his architecture.
I'm disappointed that work on his Spire isn't being continued in Chicago, it is just a big hole in the ground. Had it been built, I would have had two of his projects within easy driving distance.

I would have to say William Shinn. His extrusions inspire and delight me. I have been following his work for many years.
An excellent choice!
I had the honor of assisting Mr. Shinn at a workshop, and his creativity and giving nature are contagious.
It is one of my favorite clay-art memories.

You forgot to mention M.C. Richards in your list of who people wanted to be in the studio with.
Right on!! Zuma
