My name is Greg Baker and I started in ceramics in the early 80’s in college for my humanities requirement. I fell in love with the art and took all the classes that they had.
I moved up to Blossom Hill Crafts in the mid 80’s to continue my addiction of pottery. After about a year of working to improve my skills the owner of the studio ask me to help her teach and load the kiln. I also had a day time job to support my family. When I was laid off I moved my family to Wisconsin to be closer to my family and find work. I found a job as a pattern maker and soon after opened up a studio in my house. I made friends with an art group and started to do workshops in raku in the nearby towns. After a few years my job in California called me back to work and I accepted. The winters in Wisconsin were dreadful. I packed myself up and moved back. I went back the Blossom Hill Crafts to continue pottery and I’ve been here ever since.
