Theresa Cullen's Profile
Having not been trained in the fine arts, I have only my love for clay, dating from nearly forty years ago, to explain why I have become a ceramic lamp maker. When I purchased my first piece of pottery, a mug from a local potter, I casually signed up for classes she taught at her house, thinking I could always back out with one excuse or another. But when she called me weeks later and asked me to join her class, I really couldn't come up with an excuse. It was what I wanted to do; more than anything else, I wanted to try to make something out of clay, something functional and something beautiful. I was a college English teacher, trained to use my head; now I wanted to use my hands as well.
After years of making cups and bowls and plates and all things practical, I have fallen in love with making lamps. It started with one of my children wanting a small lamp for a specific place in her house…
