The moment John Gill knew he wanted to be a ceramic artist? "When somebody told me that you couldn't make a sculpture out of clay," says the new ACC Fellow and professor at Alfred University. He was living in Seattle at the time, and art/craft boundaries were breaking down.

"It wasn't the New York painting scene," Gill recalls. "These people were just trying to see what they could do with the material at hand."
