March Meet the Maker - Judi McAlpin, BA, MA

Judi had the advantage of growing up in a family that highly valued the arts. In college Judi studied art and obtained her BA from UC Irvine. Her path led to a career in public service and an MA in Education from San José State University.

In her retirement, she knew she would again focus on art. To cross an item off her bucket list, she took what she though

t would be one class from Yvonne Tornatta, the founder of TSPC. Five years later pottery is still the main focus of her creative drive. She enjoys both throwing and hand-building, with surface decoration always at the forefront. She can often be found around the studio doing the behind-the-scenes work and teaching classes.

You can book a private lesson with Judi or watch for special one time classes at Tumalo School of Pottery. You can see her work at @wildcronepottery
