    Paul Soldner 1921-2011

    Yesterday morning the NCECA office received news from our friend Doug Casebeer of Anderson Ranch of the passing of Paul Soldner. Paul was not only an historically significant figure in the rise of the studio movement in American Ceramics from the 1960's on, he was an ever present member of the NCECA community throughout its 45 year history. In 1989 Paul was recognized as an Honorary Member of the Council. Paul's accessibility as a person of warm, genuine and creative energy made an incalculable impact on the lives of artists, students and collectors throughout the world. We are all saddened by his loss from our lives. An observance of Paul's memory will be planned for the upcoming NCECA conference in Tampa/St. Pete, and Anderson Ranch is planning a celebration of Paul's life to take place in June 2011 in Aspen. A lovely obituary including insights from Doug and life-long friend David Armstrong appears in the January 4, 2011 edition of the Los Angeles Times.
