After finishing her Master’s in Education, Judi Munn studied pottery at the University of Memphis with the idea of adding Art to her list of teaching certifications. In 1992, after a year and a half of pottery/art classes, she got an apprenticeship at the Ozark Folk Center State Park with David and Becki Dahlstedt and has demonstrated pottery making at the Folk Center ever since. She has taught both wheel thrown pottery and hand-building during the Ozark Folk Center’s Folk School, as well as private one-on-one classes.
Judi is an active members of the Arkansas Craft Guild and the Memphis Potter’s Guild. She is the president of the Mountain View Art Guild for 2019. Her work is in the collections of Hillary Rodham Clinton and Senator Dale and Betty Bumpers. She has published articles in Ceramics Monthly, Pottery Making Illustrated, and Claytimes. Together with her husband, John Perry, they have won a variety of awards and honors. One of Judi’s Pitchers is included in the book 500 Pitchers.
The Arkansas Craft School is delighted to be offering courses with this Master Potter.
