Juror: Chris Cooley

Potter, Gallery Owner and Former NFL Player

An art education major at Utah State University, Chris Cooley planned to become a high school art teacher and coach. In 2004, Chris was drafted in the third round by the Washington Redskins and played nine years for the team. While playing, Chris continued to draw and paint, but it wasn't until the summer of 2006 that he actually purchased a pottery wheel. Throwing pots is where he found his true love for creativity. Chris is a self-taught potter and has continued to work daily at creating functional pottery for the last eight years.
