I had the memorable job of working as a studio technician for Don Reitz
thirty-seven years ago when he was teaching a course one summer at
Sheridan College. All of the fine things you said about him yesterday
were also true back then. His influence, both through teaching and by
example on ceramics in North America is immense.

I still have a large salt glaze pitcher he gave me, and I use it a
couple of times a week to carry water in to my pottery studio.
