Michael Schael, Rock Eagle Pottery

From my love of gardening to my degree in Rehabilitation Counseling with the Deaf, to my career as a potter, I knew that I had to work with my hands from an early age. After receiving my degree and working as a Counselor, I decided to follow my love of clay to Europe where I lived for 6 years and worked as a journeyman. Upon my return to the States, I worked in several workshops before setting up my own studio where I produce thrown functional pottery that is wood fired and emphasizes a simple, clean line.
