TERRY WALKDEN has found art making to be a great pleasure and participates in both AOS Painting and Ceramic studios. He pays close attention to detail in all that he creates. Terry’s curiosity has led him to some unique experiments this year. In painting studio he made a composition of fabric applique by drawing with colored pencils, then hand-stitching to complete his design. In ceramic studio he carved a bas-relief plaque with a bird. Unfortunately, the large tile cracked in the firing, but with a supportive wooden mount the finished art is even more exceptional. Terry is a hard worker and often assists in AOS tile production.

FRED WAGNER is a very creative guy! He has been making his unique artistic statements in both AOS Painting and Ceramic studios for 13 years. Fred prefers to use markers colored pencils and pens on paper for his colorful geometric designs. However, inspired by a visitor’s purse, he substitutedfabric markers to design cloth for his “Fashion Model Bag”. In Ceramic studio Fred is even more adventurous. He enriches his pottery and clever sculptural forms with incised lines, glazes with vivid colors and gives his art imaginative titles. (Tokyo is a favorite subject.) Fred may be a quiet worker, but he has a fantastic sense of humor.
