ARTIST: Mark Dudrow
Mark spent his childhood in Ohio, where he came to love pottery, clay, and Victorian architecture (all or which are easy to find there!). He studied art, architecture, and education at the College of Wooster, the Ohio State University, and the University of New Mexico.
In 1990 Mark moved to the Southwest to teach art in the Navajo Nation, near Canyon de Chelly. While living there he developed the clay, underglazing and design techniques that permeate much of his current work.
Since 1996, he has been working out of his homestead/studio on the New Mexico-Colorado border, developing his tile work, being a dad, remodeling an old adobe church and playing the cello.
Mark comes from a musical family and has been playing the cello since 1973. He appears regularly in the Southern Colorado /Northern New Mexico region playing and recording cello music as a soloist, or with many of the region's well known songwriters and other musicians.
