It is great to learn from people as amazing as Harding Black. What a great opportunity for you.

I have to thank the ones who mentioned Beatrice Wood. I didn't know her (I'am living over the pond, in Switzerland) and I was searching the net for her. I've found many wonderful pieces, and I have ordered her book. Can't wait to read it.

I love Lucie Rie's work very much also.

I drool over Kate Malone's Works- complete awe and confusion how she pulls off such beauty

And Heschuen Lin - His videos put me in a deeper calm state than hours of meditation.

I would love to channel both of them just to feel what it's like to make work like that!

I am drawn to the work of Jennifer McCurdy.

If it is available on the internet, rent "Mama of Dada". It is a great movie about her life. You would recognize many in it like Marcel Duchamp and Andre Breton.

There is a relatively unknown (and newer) potter named Randal Anderson.  He is actually a photographer and now also does pottery. He throws with an enviable looseness and is unconcerned with pottery rules; he has a bravado atypical of potters who have been taught by universities or other institutions. 

 

Although I don't want to be him, I want to learn from him. His work is inspiring!

Randal Anderson's work is very interesting as is his photography of his work. Have you ever noticed if you take a rather common pot and place it in an interesting setting, it can take on the life of the setting it's in
