Joan Platt - Potter

"I never intended to become a potter," reflects Joan Platt, a former teacher, who, at age 71, produces exquisite, world-class ceramic tableware at her studio in Palisades, N.Y. "But about 30 years ago, I broke my shoulder and as a way of encouraging me to use rotary motion, a physician suggested I wash dishes as a form of physical therapy. At the time, my husband and I were raising three small children in New York City, and, frankly, I felt like all I did was wash dishes," she says. So, Joan registered for a ceramics class instead.
