We Sassi folk are multi-talented, I dare say. In addition to having forgotten more about Italy than most tour guides have ever learned, Doug Sassi is also a career professional potter with an MFA from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. His functional pottery has influenced an entire generation of ceramicists far and wide.
While there’s certainly more to Italy tours than museums and architecture and historical sites, you really do get a deeper understanding of what you’re seeing thanks to Doug’s art and art history background.
One thought on “Sassi Pottery”
Sue and I happened to be driving home through Still Pond after having spent another great weekend with Vicky and Jerry Sawyer. And, as we passed by your place, we stopped by your studio. But, sadly nobody answered the bell…
And as I just finished eating some pudding that Sue made using some of your cups, I wanted you to know how much we appreciate your pottery – EVERY DAY!
We hope that you and Gretchen are doing well!
