Her mother, a ceramics teacher, taught Samirah the basics of wheel throwing and hand building.

Tony Young is a high school art instructor in Ohio. Tony recently ventured into the world of cup making and he slipcasts his Tumblers and throws his mugs on the wheel. Many of Tony's finishes are inspired by graffiti and his recent travels abroad. Tony is interested in recreating textures, layering bold text and imagery, while mixing in elements of my own design work. I like to work in sections, but am constantly experimenting trying to push the medium.

I am drawn to looking closely and discovering the raw and profoundly resonant power of the unseen and unassuming.” —Angela White
