Sweet Dreams Paul Soldner
I just heard about Paul Soldner passing away. My first college instructor knew Paul from Scripps College in Claremont California and always said Paul could do amazing things with clay so effortlessly. He said "Paul could take any lump of clay and make it look good" and "Paul would take a slab of clay and it seemed to flow in his hands".
I was impressed with my teacher's descriptions of Paul's work especially Paul's slab work and sculptures. My instructor said Paul was always experimenting and taking risks with clay. I try to take risks in my clay work each day. Thanks for inspiring me and for your contribution to American Contemporary Ceramics; Sweet dreams Paul Soldner.
