Patrick Hall is an artist living in Santa Barbara, California. At age 14, he fell in love with clay and soon got a job as a production potter, where he honed his throwing skills for five years. After completing a BFA, then an MFA at UCSB, he founded Design Associates. His firm specialized in designing and building custom homes, furniture and light fixtures, and landscape design.
Nearly 30 years later, he returned to clay and founded Clay Studio, where he works, teaches and shares his appreciation for the ceramic arts with other artists in the community.
