I always loved art and clay when I was a kid. I didn't think of turning it into a living until my husband had a vision of me being happy as a potter. Call it random, or call it divine inspiration, but it changed my live forever! I currently work a "day job" to pay the bills, but am slowly working to build up a pottery business on the side. I am mostly self-taught - a "newbie" without a formal education - so I am always looking to learn something new!
