Instructor Bio:

James DeRosso started working with clay in Junior High art class in The Dalles, Oregon. Ms. Orr introduced me to clay and it’s been a part of my life ever since. I received my college degree in Graphic Design, but had spent a great deal of my art electives in the ceramic studio. After college, I started working in advertising but ceramics is what I would be doing at night on my own time. The specific niche of creating monsters all began when I would make small guardian creatures that I placed on top of the kiln to ward off bad results during firings.
