It is time to make a real start to my business. So far it has all been slow going (pregnancy and baby can do that to a business, I guess.) After graduation from undergrad, I was lucky to move into a house with a huge unfinished basement. It's not an ideal studio situation (no water, one outlet), but space is space. If there's one thing a maker needs it's space. Along with space, I was fortunate enough to purchase my very own shiny Shimpo (thank you, Union University Pottery Sale for the funds). A kiln, however, was not in the budget nor was there anyway I could make one work in the basement. So, I have to do the dreaded task many fresh potters are faced with: drive an hour with greenware in the back of your car and pay (per ounce) a pottery studio to fire my work.
But here I am, ready to make a go of it. I've been back at the wheel this past week for the first time since before Eleanor (who arrive on her due date, October 25th). I have goals and dreams for this year. I want this to be a space for me to share with you how things play out in my little ceramic world.
