Teaching Artist: Maarten Tromp van Holst
Maarten Tromp van Holst was a student at Eastern Oregon University in the 1970s. He apprenticed with Betty Feves in Pendleton, Oregon. Maarten worked for a pottery supply company in Portland for three years and became a production potter for B. Welsh Pottery for several years. After a long hiatus, he reconnected with his pottery wheel that had sat idle for years. Maarten has taught for Art Center East many times over the years and is currently producing work in his own studio. He loves art and craft and wants others to experience and gain an appreciation for them.
