Michael Newman started potting in 2001. He first learned to throw at the Brookline Art Center and then continued his studies at Mudflat Studio in 2003-2005.

Dscf1521At the Brookline Art Center Michael started studying pottery with Diane Sullivan. In this class he met Kurt Kuss and they have become fast friends and potting buddies. In 2002 at BAC he continued his studies under Chris Parris (www.parrisworks.com).

The folds in his pots are the influence of these studies with Chris Parris. DSCF1116
