A Great loss to the Community
This is a great, great loss to the community. Ray will be missed. It bears mention that Ray moved to Portland to found the ceramics program at Portland State University in 1957, and brought glass hot shop concepts to Portland from the famous Toledo Workshops in Ohio. Between his teaching at PSU in ceramics and glass, and the many artists he's taught, mentored and advised over the years, Ray's contribution to Portland cannot be overstated. All of us at Museum of Contemporary Craft will miss him very much.
