Sharon LaRocca Miranda
In 1990 I discovered a student pottery coop in our neighborhood and my passion for pottery was born. Although my education is in music (I have a bachelors and masters degree in piano performance from Northwestern University), I have taken many workshops in ceramics, from Cleveland Institute of Art, and from Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, (where my teachers have been Eddie Dominguez, Val Cushing, Linda Arbuckle and Matthias Ostermann) among others. In 1995 I gave up my job teaching musicianship at Oberlin Conservatory in order to devote more time to my two loves: teaching piano to children and making pottery.
Currently, I spend as much time as I can in my studio, but I also have full piano studio of young and talented children in my home.
