While I was deciding what to write about I was also thinking about what to do that would be special for my Dad’s Birthday. Then it dawned on me, why not write about him today and all of the ways he’s influenced my life! So here’s Happy Birthday to the best Dad ever!
Dad is the head honcho behind the pottery company Dodge Station Pottery. He’s been making pottery for over 30 years-as you can tell by the black and white photos I found. He and my mom have been creating pottery for as long as I was born. My brother, sister and I grew up running around the shop and playing in the clay.

Dad is also a painter, and a fine artists of all mediums. Whether it be drawing, sculpture, etching, or screen printing, he’s taught me so much! Well I guess I haven’t mentioned that besides being my dad, he was my high school art teacher…maybe I picked up a thing or two in class…
I’m sure everyone else is with me on this one when I say- Happy Birthday Dad, from your family! You’ve always been a great instructor, coach, and craftsmen to those you’ve educated in school and in sports. But to us you’ve been our biggest teacher and fan! Thanks for all you do!
