Greetings good people please help me. I am an apprentice potter who's master works almost exclusively in porcelain and I've stained her plaster wedging table with a completely different clay body.

I have been working with clay for about 5 years now. I feel that my progress as a potter has been somewhat slow in comparison with others who have been taught in academic settings or by working with a professional potter.

Is anyone aware of where I might be able to find out about assisting/ interning with/ apprenticing with a studio potter in the South Florida area? I would very much appreciate feedback.
Hello, I'm Sarah and this is my first post. I hope I am posting correctly. I graduated from university in the UK two years ago from a mixed media degree where I specialised in Ceramics. Since graduation I have worked with a local potter as an apprentice and volunteered to wood fire with some potters. I have also been having one to one throwing tuition for over a year and getting to the stage of starting my own business and I have just purchased my first gas kiln. My website and blog are www.sarahgeeceramics.co.uk I am particularly looking for an apprenticeship or support somewhere to work
