Dave and Karin Thomas moved to
Brown County from Texas after he retired in 2012 from his job as a helicopter
mechanic. He wanted to pursue his interest in various areas of the clay
arts that he had been enjoying as a hobby for 13 years.
Dave is mostly a self-taught artist who learned to
throw pottery from Jim Sanders (Marshall, Texas). Dave started learning about
pottery in 1999 and has enjoyed it ever since.
Dave and Karin have a daughter in Indianapolis and a
son in Virginia and they wanted to move to Nashville to be closer to the kids.
