Instructor Bio, Jim Linksvayer: 

From childhood on, I have loved drawing and sketching; actually, anything to do with art.

College consisted of two years at Colorado State and my final two at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville. I got hooked on clay in my first pottery class, and I never looked back. After college, I took several workshops on functional pottery while setting up my own business. Since then I have had studios in three different locations. Teaching since 1984 helps keep me up to date with other people and gives me feedback on my work.

I sell my work at art fairs, galleries, and my studio. My inspiration comes from nature and travel.
