Ceramic artist Veralee Bassler first took clay in hand around the age of 15 in a favorite high school class, ceramics. Several years later Bassler graduated from UCLA Art Department with a concentration in ceramics. The artist then began a 25-year career of teaching in the Los Angeles Unified School District.

Today the Basslers live in the desert and have simplified their lives, resulting in a peaceful, uncomplicated, scaled down pace, creating an optimum environment in which to do their work.
