WHAT DO YOU DO NOW TO DEVELOP YOUR DREAMS?
My studio is at my job basically ,so I don’t leave when I’m done my work. I try to get there early too, I’m not a morning person necessarily but I get there half an hour early or an hour early and work on things a little bit and cover them back up with plastic. For me it’s all about being in the studio and having that piece that I’m working on in my face. I just got to to the next thing on it.
I’ve met so many fantastic potters. There are some whose work is so fantastic, but they’ve lived three times as long as me. So I just have to be patient. But for their process I have to say I really like Sarah Heimann’s work. She was a material technician at Northern Clay Center. She lives in Vermont now and teaches at Dartmouth College.
