Jim Sandefur's Profile

About

I studied pottery under Don Penny at Valdosta State (Georgia) in the early 70’s. In the mid-70’s I made a living in Colorado as a potter. My pots have been exhibited in the Denver Art Museum and galleries in Denver, Boulder and other places. For several years I was a member of the Denver Potters Guild and taught classes and built kilns for the Guild. I stopped potting in the late 70’s and started back in 2007 by firing the first pots I had made in over thirty years in Roger Jamison’s anagama near Juliette, Georgia. In the 70’s potting was a job, now it is a passion.
