So GEP this last week, asked in the question pool: If you could go back and start your ceramics journey from the beginning, would you do anything different this time? I am certain that many of you have answers that may have regrets, missed chances, or no regrets at all. However, I am one who seemed to stumble my way through life without a plan. So may be I should have set out more of a plan when I entered college, or graduated or such not. However, sometimes it is about the journey even when stumbling in the dark, that makes us who we are. My biggest regret I do believe is not buying my house with more of an eye towards a larger studio. My studio, is a one car brick garage. It really has a little more against it than that, as it does sit over an underground river, which keeps it even colder yet in the Winter. Now a one car garage, that has a number of power tools for construction, and home maintenance, is pretty crowded, even without the car. However, when you add in the materials for a ceramics studio including two kiln, a CXC wheel, wedging table, shelf storage cart, scales, sieves, hand tools, bulk glaze materials, and other assorted items you have a troublesome area that is difficult to keep clean and dust free. So what I would have done early was look for that 3 car garage when buying a house, and have a little ground around it for yard, kids play and maybe a small wood kiln. Some things you should plan for, others like life itself. . . . they just happen. best, Pres
