Cheryl M. English, a long-time resident of the metropolitan Detroit area, has traveled as far as Singapore and Turkey, only to return to her childhood dancing grounds. A life-long autodidact, Cheryl first began her ceramics studies with Gene Pluhar. Taking advantage of Mr. Pluhar’s classroom, she explored propane torches, sand blasters and drill presses while investigating the potential of slab rollers, extruders and the wheel. As an Advanced Master Gardener, her abiding interest in things natural – and indigenous – is reflected in her whimsical creations. Cheryl’s work has been featured in The Detroit News “Homestyle” section.
