Christopher Dean is a graduate of North Central Michigan College, Petoskey. Christopher will be attending Northern Michigan University this fall.
My goals in the study of ceramics are, to me, quite simple; I want clay to be my life! I want the teaching and learning, procurement and eventual sale of ceramic to be my career and profession.
I have realized through these past few years at North Central Michigan College, that furthering my education at a four-year institute, might be the most direct and logical path to achieving these goals. I feel that I have gone the limits of my home town college and am ready to begin the course work for a Bachelors of Ceramic Arts.Christopher Dean
Denise Widen is attending Henry Ford College in Dearborn. One of her passions is wood firing.
My personal goals with continued work in the ceramic arts are multiple. I hope to continue working as long as it takes to develop a recognizable and cohesive aesthetic in my work. I have been working for 3 years at HFC College, doing mainly what I consider exploratory work. This autumn will mark the beginning of my 4th year of study of the ceramic medium.Denise Widen
