refresh: studio processing
a realignment + a visual diary of a day
The past five or so months I’ve nestled into this newsletter as a space to share my process, a little peek into the thoughts of a mindful potter for those interested in glimpsing behind the studio door. With this settling, I felt the urge for a refresh that better matched my practice and process as it’s shapeshifted. The spirit of the content isn’t changing, I’m simply broadening the lens through which I’m sharing. I’m so glad you’re here to witness my creative process and my learning process through working with clay.
May we all have the courage to trust the process, both in and out of the studio.
I thought it would be fun if the first letter after my midsummer refresh was a visual peek into a typical workday of mine. As with any person creating for a living, my days are all a little different, but here’s what a day last week looked like for me:
I’m in the beginning stages of planning pottery making workshops and I’m both thrilled and nervous. The vibe is: community gatherings, late summer gardens, pinching clay into mugs, lemon bars and melon juice.
I’m simultaniously gearing up for fall markets and the holidays (!) I have mug designs and pretty little vases and sculptural ornaments on my mind.
Here are three images that inspired me this week:
And finally, my weekly messy studio pic. This week it’s me smiling at you from the wheel, where I’m grateful to be spending so much time!
Thank you, as always, for being here.
