Eric Olson‘s career in clay began after taking a five session introduction to wheel throwing course through the University of Wisconsin Craftshop. While running his greenhouse business, he was able to spend off hours playing and experimenting with clay. Six months after that first class, he sold the greenhouse operation and started making pottery full-time
Through more than 26 years of working with clay he has refined and broadened his skills as a ceramic artist, and developed a method of teaching those skills that is easy and fun to learn. Eric has taught students of all ages and skill levels at studios in Wisconsin, Michigan, Florida and Montreal.
