John Stillwagon was a creative, prolific artist., with an incredible work ethic. Down to earth, laid back, unpretentious and full of humor. He wone the Ceramic award in his junior year at the Corcoran, and helped me win the same award the following year because I learned from him to just produce and stop analyzing everything. He just had a way of making you feel it was ok to be authentic. I haven’t seen him in years. But he was always part of the group of artists that I considered extended family. Thank you John for all you gave!
