Not everyone has the best start in life. Family background, health history, location, and many other influences outside of one’s control play significant roles in our upbringing and in how we view our world. Richard Peterson, a ceramicist and self-described ‘troubled youth’, has a startling personal story about growing up in a trailer and ultimately turning things around for himself.

He sat down with Brigitte Martin, Crafthaus Founder & Editor, for an interview in July 2015 which is posted on crafthaus in six segments:

  1. Growing Up
  2. Hard Work
  3. Grad School
  4. Making and Selling
  5. I Admire
  6. Let it Happen
