First I think it is important to point out the difference between an 
artists bio , where they went to school, where thy were born, how they 
found their way to ceramic's, etc. how old they are, how many degrees 
they have or where they are teaching, or working as an artist who lives 
off the sale of their work, and a statement as to what their thinking 
was that brought them to this body of work that you are looking at. I 
have seen many web sites that differentiate between the two. For 
myself, in all of my almost 50 years of working in clay I have never 
been asked for an artist statement. Mike Gordon
