Mark Zamantakis, although strongly identified with Denver and the Rocky
Mountain region, reveals himself as an international personage, particularly
in his chosen field -- the art of ceramics. Born in Utah, of parents who
came from the island of Crete, he received his B. F. A. in Art Education,
and M.A. in Ceramic Art at the university of Denver. Mr. Zamantakis has
taught at George Washington High School and the Colorado woman's College, and
as an exchange teacher in Kyoto, Japan. While abroad, he was able to absorb
much from the ancient practices of kiln firing and pottery making of the
Chinese and Korean potters reflected on the work of contemporary Japanese
potters. Mr. Zamantakis operates a Washington Park (Denver) studio and has
built a permanent three chamber climbing kiln in Fairplay, Colorado, where he
also has a summer studio.
