Thea Patterson came to pottery late in life. After moving to Fort Worth from New Orleans to be closer to her aging parents, she attended a pottery show at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center and met Janet Rodriguez, from whom she took lessons for two years. This led to a love of clay and its endless variations. Thea has attended workshops with Steven Hill, Linda Arbuckle, James Watkins, and other leading potters, all of whom have helped shape her style and palette, but her greatest influences have been the members of the Texas Pottery & Sculpture Guild, who have given her guidance and encouragement for the past eight years.
