George and his wife, Rosario, have retired from teaching to Murfreesboro Tennessee where they work on their craft. Rosario makes beautiful jewelry and sells it on this site at very reasonable prices. George works in his studio as a master potter.
George has also taught ceramic graduate courses for Virginia Commonwealth University to teachers who are working on their Masters degree.
George has been published numerous times in the national ceramic magazine “Pottery Making Illustrated “ and in a leading magazine in South Africa. His painting "Dove In Flight" was purchased by the new hospital in Murfreesboro to provide inspiration to the patients and their families.
George states, “ I have always felt a kinship with painting and clay. Being able to take a lump of clay or a blank canvas and to make something beautiful out of it reflects both my life and the job I had as a teacher of young people. I also feel as my life has changed, so has my pottery and painting and one is closely associated with the other. I have been influenced by many different artists that I have studied, but I am particularly attracted to the African and Japanese potters and their methods of design.”
