Remembering Tom Rohr

Oregon potter, teacher, and friend of Studio Potter died suddenly on July 8 at his home outside Eugene. Tom was a vivid, generous, life-embracing potter and friend, and his loss will be deeply felt by the students, wood-firing crews, and fellow-potters whose lives he touched – as well as by his family. His wife, potter Kathryn Finnerty, has asked that people who want to remember Tom’s life in clay do so with a donation to Studio Potter. We are more touched than we can say by the generosity of this gesture, and by being included in the ceramic community honoring Tom. Our heartfelt thanks and condolences to Kathryn and to Tom’s friends and family.http://www.studiopotter.org/tomrohr/
