2018 Staff Spotlight - Brad Miller

As a recent graduate (December) from UW-Whitewater in Art Education I have been spending my time the past couple of months doing a bunch of things!   I spent a couple months substitute teaching in elementary, middle, and high school classes! I have also been making some of my own art work as well!

My favorite art medium to work with has to be clay! I've been making pots on the wheel for the past 8 years and have focused on wood firing for the majority of the time! In January I was accepted into my first international gallery exhibit in Detroit with five of my cups on display at Pewabic Pottery.  Other than clay, I love drawing and working with new mediums all the time!
