1. Vera creates a magical environment that supports creativity. Her enthusiastic spirit and joy for the clay is contagious. Working and sharing art in that kind of environment is a unique and bonding experience. You get a lot more out of her classes than a few finished pieces of pottery or sculpture and some new techniques. At the end of the class you feel closer to others…and to yourself.  (Colleen)

2. I recently attended Vera’s workshop. It was wonderful experience all around. Vera is a great and inspiring teacher with decades of experience. I would highly recommend any workshop she is offering. Can’t wait for the next one! (Sabine)

3. Thank you, Vera, for going out of your way to create the perfect ceramic learning/socializing workshop. The spacious work spaces, (loved the sculpting stands) and beautiful outdoor space was very well thought out. I love your classes and you outdid yourself with this one. The raku results were exceptional. The goodies were delicious as always ! (Gloria) 

4. Bliss up to the Dutchess for creating a space and environment of love and creativity. While an incredible, well-seasoned teacher who pulls inspiration from all aspects and experiences of life. Vera just makes learning and experimenting with “the New” especially fun and playful. We were fortunate so spend our Saturday with her, and would highly recommend her as a teacher for any occasion, put in particular, for an experience that leaves you feeling recharged and your “cup” more full than when you stepped into her studio (3/28/23)
