I fell in love with pottery in the North Carolinian mountans in the potters hands. I like to make any thing that reflects nature or that can share Gods love. I love teaching and sharing God’s love through Art. I have the best students any one could hope for. I have about 150 students all with develamental disabilities. God has blessed me with this special ministry. – Candy Wheat
