Robert Maxwell

by Students of Robert Maxwell

As a ceramics instructor, Robert Maxwell regularly demonstrates the basics of clay modeling and throwing on the wheel. He may assign a class a particular theme to explore-like "Pop Art" or "Fantasy." After that, he does what all art teachers do: he stands back and observes the working habits of the students, gives encouragement when needed, and awaits the eventual outcome of their individual creative accomplishments.

Work by a few of the exceptional high school students from Robert Maxwell's beginning and advanced ceramics classes at Ramona over the years are showcased here.
