Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

Russell Schermer

I have been totally blind since birth. Since childhood I have enjoyed making things out of clay and have continued to develop my skills as an artist throughout my life. Although I took some ceramics classes in high school and college, I have had little formal training. In addition to my interest in clay I have had a lifelong fascination with old cars. Through my work, I have been able to integrate both my interests.
