It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of Jim Thomson.
After a long battle with cancer, surrounded by family and friends, Jim passed away peacefully on Wednesday April 24, 2013.
Jim had an international reputation as a ceramics artist and the school benefitted from his experience and expertise both as an instructor and as an advisor. He taught ceramics at OSA for many years and was the prime mover in the reorganization of the school’s ceramic studio and the establishment of ceramics as an important media in our programs. He was an enthusiastic and positive instructor who was much loved by his students and colleagues at OSA. Everyone at OSA will miss him, but most especially his students and those who were privileged to work closely with him. OSA is planning to host a memorial service. Please check our website for announcements.
