How Did We Get Here?
I'm Kelvin, and I am the DeafBlind Potter. I live with Usher Syndrome type ll, which affects my hearing and vision. I was born with hearing loss and have worn hearing aids all of my life. When I was 13, I lost my night vision, at 19 became legally blind, and 28 lost all of the clarity in my vision. Today I no longer see pictures and details. Throughout my journey, I revisited the pottery wheel many times and it helped me grieve through the stages of my vision loss. I started encouraging others to experience the healing power of the wheel, which led me to the formation of DeafBlind Potter. Now, our company is on a mission to build a ceramics studio that will support individuals with disabilities through pottery.
