    Don ReynoldsExplore surface with one of the most colorful personalities in clay, Don Reynolds, who hails from the Clay Art Center in Port Chester, NY.  Reynolds tries to never produce pots that will match the sofa – unless you live in Pee Wee’s Playhouse.

This workshop is perfect for those looking for a new direction for their work or interested in learning layering techniques using bright color that both sing and dance (don't be afraid to tip)!...
