On Demand Video Pottery Lessons with Adam on Patreon

*Starting at $5 per month


I’m a full time potter, educator and ceramic artist. I have been the intermediate/advanced ceramics instructor at Turk Hill Craft School in Fairport, NY for almost 15 years. I studied clay at Alfred University where I met my wife Sarah.

Patreon is a membership platform that I use to share a lifetime of ceramics knowledge with you in a clear and concise way. You can learn about every aspect of pottery making from a professional in a way that works for your life…anytime, anywhere. The App is extremely useful for learning on the go! We came to Patreon to share our clay knowledge with the world and to connect with other potters in a new way. We want to create a supportive, inclusive, positive and affordable online environment for our Patrons to learn, to meet other potters from around the world and to build a community.  Join us!
