Marcus Dawson

Ceramics and Kathy Koop have changed my life in a way that I had never dreamed of. Up until the last semester of my senior year I had planned on a career in law enforcement…that was until I took wheel throwing with Kathy. I did graduate with a BA in sociology/criminal justice in May of ’97, but now I am rethinking my future. Kathy’s willingness to allow me into an already full class granted me the opportunity to find and explore a new interest. Since graduating I have spent practically every spare moment on the wheel. I also spent the summer of ’98 apprenticing with a potter in Pittsburgh and presently I am assisting Kathy with her wheel throwing class.
