As a ceramics hobbyist, Tracy Bell is well practiced adapting to changing circumstances. “What results from 2381℉ is amazing,” says Tracy, “but your piece might not turn out exactly as intended, regardless of best-laid plans.” Knowing what you can transform – and how – are valuable skills, not only in the world of ceramics, but program leadership as well.
