Randy Brodnax, a life-long potter and educator from Dallas, Texas, creates everything from functional dinnerware to large decorative vessels to clay sculpture. Many of his unique creations exhibit images of nature, animals and fish. He has specialized in Raku for many years using natural imagery and drawing upon a wild fantasy world of creatures of the mind. Brodnax has retained much of the Cajun joie de vivre with which he was raised and says "As an instructor, my desire for my students is to learn and have fun at the same time. Projects and lessons are about life as well as art. Art is bodacious!" (http://www.potters.org/subject73754.htm)
