Peter Ward, Teacher
My name is Peter Ward and I am a native to Brookline, NH. I graduated from Franklin Pierce University with a degree in Fine Arts with a focus in ceramics. I fell in love with pottery since day one of working with clay; there is so much that this medium has to offer. It is both challenging yet calming at the same time. To me there is nothing as relaxing and mesmerizing as the ceramic process. To some the process may seem slow, but there nothing like seeing a piece come to life from start to finish. My goal as a potter is work with as many different people in this field so I can become as well rounded as I can, not only as a potter but an artist as well. I want to continue to learn everything that I can about this craft. The teaching process is something that I feel is equally as important as the learning process. If it wasn’t for the passion for the craft my teachers/professors possessed, I wouldn’t have to passion for ceramics that I do now; and it’s that passion for the craft that I wish to pass on to others.

My name is Bonnie Rankin and I am a star ⭐️ maker/ studio helper at The Voice of Clay. I took a few classes here and there but really found my love of pottery in Wendy’s classes. Working with clay is my meditation in motion. I live in Chelmsford, MA with my husband and two doggies.
Katie Pugliese, shop Assistant
I am outdoors any chance I get. If I’m not outside, I’m in a room full of plants. Besides nature, I have always enjoyed art and creating. My favorite medium is wool and I am never not needle felting some kind of creature. I live in Mason with my wonderful husband, our pixie of a child, and a cast of characters we call “pets.”
