Potter/owner 8 Scott has been working with clay for fifteen years. Initially, just a hobby to escape from the grind of the “day job”, Scott has found his calling and is enjoying the next chapter of life-transforming what was a hobby into a profession.

Having practiced law for more than 18 years, the transition to potter may appear anything other than a natural fit. “My focus for the first half of my life had always been in areas where I used my analytical skills — from being a Politics major at The Catholic University of America to representing thousands of clients in court and running my litigation practice in Milwaukee. Taking up pottery as a hobbyist was an incredible change in how I both thought and saw the world. Art opens your mind and lets you see things we miss daily. Art creates possibilities we don’t always see or that we take for granted.”

Thanks to the encouragement of family and friends, Scott began taking classes at both local pottery studios and in North Carolina at the John C. Campbell Folk School.

Constantly expanding his repertoire in clay, Scott looks forward to taking additional classes and learning new techniques. “There is so much more that I want to accomplish in clay. It is an art form that allows for constant change and experimentation. It is the artistic marriage of control and chaos — you never know what you’ll have until it’s done. I don’t know yet where this journey will take me, but I am excited to find out.”
While keeping up a very active show schedule, Scott maintains his studio and art gallery in beautiful downtown Jefferson, WI, and has taught pottery at the Racine Art Museum, Wustum Campus.
