Best Clay Wrangler

Eric Jackson, Art School at the Contemporary

The "Doctor" of Texas Medicine Pottery in Buda has been mixing mud and mentoring students at the Laguna Gloria (now the Art School at the Contemporary) ceramic studio for nearly 15 years. He's been wielding his expertise at specialized firings – reduction, soda, raku, lustre – and just as importantly, sharing his gift for being the "best kind of teacher: supportive, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, open, and generous" to students with their own gifts and their own visions.
