    Some people dance with their feet and others play music with their lips. Georgia gave us a heart full of art with her hands. She will always be remembered in my life for her gift of clay….and a firm strong lip!

    How do you sum up the life of this incredible human in only a few words? Georgia was my friend and I considered her a mentor, although i was never officially in any of her classes. She was so encouraging with thoughtful suggestions and constructive...  more

    She was one of my first teachers. . .kind, generous and so supportive. She pushed me to grow as an artist, showed me after many attempts on my own how (finally!) to throw something taller than six inches, and encouraged me to join the Artist Community. ...  more

    Holding Georgia’s porcelain bowl with olive celadon and Charley D White glazes instantly makes me feel her embrace. The craftsmanship is flawless, it’s just the right size, it’s beautiful in a quiet, not flashy way. Georgia was a consummate...  more

    I loved taking classes with Georgia back when they were held in what is now the Gallery. I learned SO much from her. She was kind, gracious and forgiving, especially when she slipped and fell on some water I had failed to wipe off the floor! I'll...  more

    These photos were taken at a lunch i hosted for Georgia's 70th Natalie's 75th and Nancy and Ellen's 60th Birthdays in 2013. I found these goofy sunglasses that i made the birthday women put on. It was a lovely, fun, day. Georgia was my firing partner;...  more

    Georgia was my teacher, friend, life coach, and "pottery mom" -- I am at a loss without her. But she is with me everytime I sit at the wheel, fire a kiln, help a student. I was blessed to have known her, as we all were, and cherish all the...  more

    I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Georgia. My condolences to her family and friends, and for all of us connected to CAC. Georgia taught me about your "color pallette". It changed my work forever. She will be missed.

    Georgia was my virtual teacher during the first wave of the pandemic. Our class became the highlight of my week. I didn’t live close enough to use the studio in person, but Georgia went out of her way to order and pick up clay and materials for me....  more

    Georgia was my first teacher when I joined CAC, she was always generous in sharing her knowledge. She made me feel comfortable through her caring and love for others. She will be greatly missed. We need more people like her to make this world a better loving place.
