Michael Weinberg passed away from a sudden heart attack while mountain biking with friends in Flagstaff, Arizona that morning. Mike was born February 23, 1953 in Elmhurst, Illinois and grew up in Claremont, California. He moved to Arizona's Verde Valley in the mid 1970's after graduating from UC Irvine with a Bachelor's degree in English. For over three decades, Mike pursued a career in ceramics. He was a gifted artist, and clay was his element.
His art evolved into a myriad of hand thrown lamps, vases, plates and unique shapes with creative embellishments all representing the colors and elements of the Arizona desert that he loved. His pieces were prized and awarded repeatedly throughout juried art shows and galleries from coast to coast. When not working in his studio, Mike enjoyed his favorite outdoor activities; cycling, alpine skiing, fishing, hiking, golfing and surfing with family and friends.
