I've been happily working away in the studio making lots of pots, or at least getting them thrown. It's slow going sometimes in this studio with getting the pots to dry out and ready for the next step. I've been throwing a batch of small and medium sized lidded jars and am finishing up some oval bakers. As usual the studio is getting full to the brim of pots...I need more shelving!, no I need more space! It's funny how fast one can outgrow a studio, I've taken over ever square inch plus some more and have lately been feeling like I wish I could spread out more. Well, there is always room for change on the horizon. I've been considering thoughts of finding a different studio situation lately, although the choices remain infinite. In my time at this studio I have decided that I would like to share a studio with someone. The solitude is nice, well, sometimes. It's bittersweet. But after working alone for over two years, I have found I would like some company while in the studio. I think it would just keep the energy flowing better and could be a pleasant, cheerful interruption to my thoughts that are always circling 'round my head! I don't know how or when all this can change but it's definitely something I think about as I think of the future. I'm sure I'm not alone in this desire as I know other artists/potters out there probably feel similarly.
Hope everyone has a good weekend!
