Dan Anderson taught for 32 years at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville before retiring in 2002. Since then he's been a full-time studio potter, actively making and exploring ideas about architecture, decals, and historic personalities. Dan has had a rich life and during his career he's been fortunate to come into close contact with major ceramics artists, such as Peter Voulkos and Toshiko Takaezu. He also talks about growing up in Minnesota, working at his family's grocery store, and his two brushes with cancer, among other pieces of his life. Dan's full of stories, he's a raconteur and he's a great interview. Enjoy!
