New Year, new excitement!

New Year, new excitement!

The new year can bring much excitement and momentum to make positive changes in our lives.  For me, it is propelling me to make positive changes to my business and my studio.  (Which in turn changes my life and I love it!)

When we built my studio back in 2012, I was pregnant and teaching full time.  I hadn’t worked with clay consistently for several years because of the demand of teaching, and I knew that if I didn’t make a move to create a pottery space now, it might not happen for many many years to come.  So, we made the decision to build my tiny studio.  We scraped together what funds we could and used repurposed wood, recycled materials and made it happen!  This studio not only madd it easier for me to throw pots, it also allowed me to show my child that as him mom, I have dreams and I wasn’t afraid to work hard for them.  I wanted to be an inspiration for him.  I wanted him to grow up playing in the space I love so much.

Since building the studio I have grown in so many ways.  I have grown in my skill level, my dedication and my productivity.  That being said, I have long outgrown my cute and tiny 9’x7’ studio space.  SOOOOO, the big news is:

We are building a new studio!

I will keep you all posted as my studio takes shape.  I can’t wait to share this process with you.  My hopes are to have a studio warming party in the spring!  Help me warm the space that will bring years of happiness and warmth to my life!

The reason I included the photo of my dear friend Jay in this blog is because he recently helped me move my ‘NEW to me SLAB ROLLER’.  This slab roller is living on my back deck right now and I have used it almost every day since I got it.  There will be enough space in the new studio to house this slab roller INSIDE!  I am so thrilled!

The possibilities are endless with this new space.  Classes, studio sales, more space for lager production, a shipping station…the list goes on and on.  

Thank you all for joining me on this journey!  You are the reason I push myself to grow.  If you keep loving my pottery, I will keep making it!

Sending you all love!
