Pottery Northwest, a Seattle institution both literally and figuratively, was founded in 1966. As part of celebrating their 50th anniversary, they are posting weekly interviews with notable people in their history. Because of our School's long involvement with clay, it should be no surprise that some of these people are associated with us. Below is a list in order of publication as of October 13, 2016. We will add names as they appear during the remainder of the year.

Jean Griffith (MFA 1963)

Jamie Walker (BFA 1981, 3D4M Professor, and our current Director)

George Rodriguez (MFA 2009)

John Taylor (retired School staff member)

Patti Warashina (BFA 1962, MFA 1964, and a Professor Emerita)

Akio Takamori (Professor Emeritus)

Cheryl Johnson (MA 1976)
