Profile and Credentials        

Paul Handy























The process of manipulating a ball of clay to create a work of art has always fascinated me.











Clay has always fascinated me more than any other medium. Since childhood I have found myself attracted to its flexibility and texture. Working on the wheel is a totally absorbing act and requires your full attention blocking out the stress and worries of normal life.











Traveling several hours to take classes at the Brooklyn Museum of Art in New York City was the beginning of my experience in clay. I continued my casual study of ceramics throughout High School and College and was always fascinated by the people the Arts attract.











After graduation with a B.A. in Accounting (yes Accounting) I remained active in pottery in a home studio with a small kiln. After several years as a hobby the pressures of life over shadowed my love for the Arts and for almost 12 years I did not touch a piece of clay.











After a visit to GPAC (Georgia Piedmont Art Center) for a show in February of this year we toured the studio and when I saw the Wheels all lined up in a neat row I felt an immediate need to sit down and throw.











I have found that clay has never left my system and is totally absorbing and a great way to express ones self.











Enjoy my expressions in clay and by all means buy one to take with you.
