Hi and welcome to my blog about everything ceramic. My name is Pamela and I am an art student at the University of Delaware. I first became interested in ceramics as a child watching PBS (there was no cable tv then) and a man by the name of Bill van Gilder, a potter, who was on that channel, maybe once a week or so. I did not think at that time that "artist" was a proper profession and after graduating high school decided that I would like to try college. I hated college, I hated my major, and let's just say, I hated everything about college at that time in my life. I decided that what I wanted most was to get married and have a family, so that is what I did. Well, 6 years later that dream fell apart and I became a single mom. I became a secretary and was happy with my life but always wanted to go back to college. A few years later, the University was looking for persons within the facilities department and I decided to take the job because of the great educational benefits. So, here I am now, a student of ceramic art.
