I have been interested in doing pottery and working on the wheel. I found the Black Bean Ceramic Art Center in San Jose close to home and enrolled in their beginner class early summer 2010. Ruben is a master potter and was our instructor. Will and Ruben have done pottery together for many years and started the studio together. They are very skilled and helpful to everybody. There are beginners and several experienced artists who are members of the studio.

Here are some pieces I worked on & completed under the direction of Ruben and Will.

I need to find more time to go back and continue learning. Working on the wheel is very therapeautic.
