Earlier this week noted potter Michael Simon passed. Today’s episode is a re-airing of our 2014 interview where we talk about intuition, the influence of Michael's teacher Warren Mackenzie, and a lifetime devoted to finding truth in the pursuit of pottery. After studying at the University of Minnesota in the late 1960's, Michael set up a studio in the Athens, GA area where he made pots for more than 30 years. From shallow round bowls to complex squared boxes Michael developed a unique approach to matching form with decoration. To see examples of his work read the book Michael Simon: Evolution, which features many of Michael’s favorite pots that he made from 1980 onward.
