GARY HOLT – BERKELEY POTTER

In the last year, I added a gallery to my website called “stories.” It contains images I’ve captured over the years which express elements of environment and personal character that are interesting and inspiring not only in what is being done but also in the “who” is doing it.

Gary Holt struck me as one of those people. I photographed him about 7 years ago in Berkeley, CA at his pottery studio. His demeanor and ease, insightful wisdom and gentle approach stayed forever with me, as the way of being in the world.

Now that I am in ceramics class over 7 years later, I am astounded by such amazing talent and genius his glazing and staining techniques reach, especially now that I struggle to simply move clay.

Here are a few photos from that day I spend with him in 2005.
