I have been working with and creating pottery for the past 15 years.
I originally started when I was 10 years old, and I absolutely fell in love with it.
Afterwards, I spent all of my allowance money on all pottery equipment and got to work making all kinds of different shapes. Fast forward to now and I make pottery professionally. My favorite is creating decorative vases for flowers or to hold other pretty items. I love to create the perfect shape, and then take time painting all kinds of beautiful floral designs there. I am always careful not to make any other pieces of pottery look similar, as I want them all to be unique in their own way. Anyways, a good friend of mine knew I was working with a really small space to create all of this pottery, and he knew I needed more room. Since he was no longer using the office space for rent, he let me use it rent free. I was more looking for an artisan loft for rent, but there didn’t seem to be very many in my area, so I accepted his offer for the business space for rent. From there I converted it into a shop space for rent. With having so much more room, I was really able to expand and grow my pottery hobby. It got to the point where I was thinking about taking my craft public and letting people buy them from me. I have gotten so many compliments on them, maybe I should make it into an art business focusing on pottery.
