Chuck took all of the pics above when he visited. Yesterday, John McGeen helped me move some things around as I am loading skids and packing boxes at my studio and in the DCRL. As I look through these images and I talk to John, I am reminded of all of the good things that my students built in this place and the environment that they all created here. The last few blog posts and seeing this work has reminded me how much I have been impacted by my students. They all have pushed me to be a better teacher but more importantly, a better person. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity to do what I love to do and to work with so many talented people. I was able to develop as an artist/craftsman here and to build something truly unique. In addition, I feel like I was able to use my abilities to do something greater than myself AND NOW I get to witness (via the internet) all of the creative people who I had the opportunity to work along side and discover things with here at UWM. Thanks to all of you students out there that left a lasting impression on me and thanks for helping me realize that your success and contributions to society are more important than my own.
