I am so proud to announce that I have finally set up and moved into my new studio in my backyard! I had been wishing and planning to set up shop at home for a while now. Thanks to Craigslist and the constant help of my very handy father, this studio happened faster than I was expecting. This shed (or tiny house, rather) was a former dog grooming salon in Garner, NC. Moving it down the road to Durham was quite a feat but now it's settled nicely in my backyard under the giant willow oak.
I've gained so much knowledge and inspiration these past few years at Claymakers community studio here in Durham. However, I can feel that I am itching for the flexibility of my own space and the ability to experiment and develop my own colors and glazes. I am still cleaning out dog hair, organizing supplies, and waiting on my dad to finish building my worktable. I can't wait to share more photos of the studio with you and to have an open house some time this spring! Cheers and good vibes to you, wherever you find yourself at the start of this new year.
