Jan Richardson has worked in clay since 1960, the majority of the time as a hand builder. She created Windy Meadows Pottery, designing and making intricate stoneware building caricatures. Her paper clay experience began in 2013 after meeting Rosette Gault, the developer of the paper clay we will be using.
