I am seeking an apprenticeship in ceramics preferrably in a small- to
medium-sized studio and am willing to travel to the great states beyond
Michigan. I'm 47 years old and have worked at a local public school for the
last 17 years. After taking pottery classes the last 2 1/2 years at a local
college, I've decided that "I can't get enough clay!" and I'm ready for a
change in careers. I'd like to begin this summer (possibly as early as the
middle of June) and am flexible on the duration of the apprenticeship.
I am dedicated, highly motivated, love people, and am willing to take on
the daily drudgery involved in a working studio. I truly would appreciate
the opportunity to learn from someone experienced as I wish to someday have
my own studio. You would be pleased with my work and my work ethics. I
have experience in handbuilding, wheelthrowing, glazes and teaching young
students. My goal is to further develop my skills, learn new skills, and
learn all aspects of operating a studio along with having a little time to
work on my own.
Please pass this information along if you know of anyone looking for an
apprentice and if you'd like to contact me, I can be reached at:

I have a graduating high school senior doing an internship at my
studio. He has decided to postpone going to college and is looking for an
apprenticeship. He is willing to travel.
In my 12 weeks working with Andy he has been punctual, and has a great
attitude. He has done all of the menial tasks I have set upon him quickly
and well. He loves throwing, but is willing to do what needs to be done
around the studio in order to have the opportunity to learn to be a

Perhaps Tod has students near by that would wish for an apprentice. I know
Cary Hulin sometimes takes an apprentice. He's in Holmes county Ohio firing
a 400 cubic foot snake kiln a couple times a year. Finishing up a 100 cu
bury box. I think he knows the remaing cardews and such. Its in amish
country, the Dutchmen buggy over the scrap from their lumber mills for kiln
fuel, Cary hand mixes his clay and once fires it. Fun guy worth visiting.
