About Me - Wayne Cardinalli Pottery

A little background

I've been making pots full-time for over 40 years, ever since graduating from Temple University's Tyler School of Art with a MFA in ceramics. Also during this time I've regularly taught ceramics. Taking a little time away from my studio keeps my ideas fresh.

Selected teaching experience:

•  Greenwich House Pottery, New York City

•  Clay Art Center, Port Chester, New York

•  Sir Sandford Fleming College, Coburg and Belleville, Ontario

•  Koffler Centre of the Arts, Toronto, Ontario

•  Dundas Valley School of Art, Dundas, Ontario

•  Haliburton School of Art, Haliburton, Ontario. Summer workshops and Sir Sandford Fleming College Certificate Program.

I've also conducted over 150 workshops, lectures, demonstrations, and critiques across Canada and the USA.
