Ceramics: Wayne Ferguson

This profile of ceramic artist Wayne Ferguson is as much about an approach to life as it is about an approach to art. In this video segment, he explains how a teacher’s interest—and the clay that teacher gave him—helped him through his troubled teenage years and how his work helped him deal with a car accident that robbed him of sight in one eye.

Note: Ferguson is also featured in the Visual Arts Toolkit Responding to Art segment “The Artist’s Point of View, Part 2.”
