Comments: "I met Paul in 1999 at his home in CA. It was Superbowl Sunday and Paul, Char, Mike Duckworth and I sat and watched the game on Paul's 13 inch portable. He made some delicious Guacamole and that was the beginning of our friendship. Due to a stroke in Dec of 2010 I am not able to drive so sadly I was not able to attend services for Paul. I am so lucky to have known him. I often remember the wonderful times, and the great love of clay we both shared."

Comments: "I am disappointed that I am a potter/clay artist and living in Colorado and our paths have not yet intersected. I am hoping that through you book I will meet you and your work. I believe in the afterlife and that you are in the heavens doing what, here, was considered controversial. Happy Trails, my friend."

Comments: "Sometime about 1979 or..many years ago, when I was a student, I could not afford workshops. My ceramic teacher got me in to a workshop as a 'go for' for Paul at a workshop he did at Fresno City College. Even tho I had to run around getting water, picking up stuff and bringing clay and what not to Paul, I was allowed to sit in on the workshop. What I remember the most was how unassuming and down to earth Paul was. It was very memorable and I am so glad to have been able to be a small part of that weekend many many years ago."
Comments: "Paul gave workshops and influenced students for decades. He built the best equipment for potters. His work was always evolving; he made beautiful pottery. He left a great legacy behind, in that he inspired others to experiment as he did in his art. He will be missed by many."
