    Shortly before Christmas 2017, Peter Eulau(65) passed away at his home surrounded by his family and loved ones after a short battle with lung cancer.  Peter began working in clay at the University of Oregon in the late 70's. He made beautiful hand-built pottery with intricate textures and inlayed colors. He was an early member of OPA and took part in many Ceramic Showcases in the 80's. In the 90's, Peter transitioned from potter to tile-setter. His new career offered him a larger format with many grand projects and Peter  continued to help and support many potters in the clay community. Peter will be missed by his many friends.
