I came to clay after years of thinking I had no artistic talent (thanks to a high school art teacher's advice to stick with math).  While hiking one day, I fell into step with an acquaintance who asked me what I would do if I didn't have to work for a living.  I told him I had always wanted to throw clay.  I swear I didn't know that he manufactured potters wheels for a living.  Long story short, I have been working with clay since that day in 1992, learning mostly from community college classes and workshops in San Diego and throughout the U.S.
