Artist Talk & Demonstration: Bill Wedekind, Potter & Disabled Vietnam Veteran
Monday, May 16, 2022
Bill Wedekind is the only known blind, double-hand amputee potter in the world. As a US Marine in 1968, Bill lost both eyes, part of one ear, and both hands in a blast injury in Vietnam. He was introduced to pottery by his grandmother and studied the craft at Kansas State University in the early 70s. Now, as a potter-turned-motivational speaker, Bill enjoys giving lectures and demonstrations for audiences of all ages, including disabled Veterans and VA staff.
