Geoff studied at various schools and studios in North Carolina when pottery was experiencing a renaissance in the 1960's. He has experimented with various clay bodies, glazes, and firing techniques.
As a teacher, Geoff is admired and emulated by his students, from age 3 to retirees. He is patient and encouraging with folks who start working with clay for the first time.
