Meagan Pethick's Profile

About

My very first experience with clay was a young child growing up on the shores of Lake Huron. After thunder storms I’d run down and find pieces of clay that would break off into the water from the waves crashing up against the cliff. Letting the sun warm my back and running the sand threw my fingers I’d spent hours making little worlds only I could comprehend. Little did I know that these would become my materials for inspiration, later in life!
At the age of 18 I sat down at a pottery wheel for the first time...it was horrible, nothing at all what I imagined it to be. Instead of the clay flowing and growing from my hands I made mud! With much determination I stuck with the wheel perfecting my craft over the past 17 years and teaching ceramics for the past 8 years.
