You also get to see what Simon calls his “teaching collection” of pottery and listen in on the candid conversation about the work of other influential artists. You’ll be surprised to find that the some of the students’ questions prompted inspiring answers from Simon that are applicable not just to art, but also to life outside the studio … and the classroom.

We’d like to thank Ms. Tera Stockdale, Principal Kenton Lee, and the students of Columbus North International School in Ohio for hosting us and for all of their thoughtful questions.
