Studio Sunday

22 Feb

On Sunday I made cups for my studio. I thought people could use them while they visit me here. As a potter I’m just a little out of practice but it felt good to be at the wheel again and thought it went well for an afternoon’s work.

Last night I trimmed the cylinders and added handles to my studio cups. Wondering if some of these mugs may be too tall for my Keurig dripper. Ah well, good practice for my rusty potting hands.

Stu-stu-studio

7 Feb

My boyfriend calls it my stu-stu-studio. I’m just putting some finishing touches on my new pottery studio. Woohoo! I’m just about ready to start making art again. It’s been awhile.
I’ve been moving around the last few years – first to Dillingham in southwest Alaska and then to Petersburg in the southeast edge of this great state. My previous studio stayed behind in my hometown of Anchorage. I’d visit it from time to time when I’d go back home for holidays or trainings for work but there was usually not a lot of time for creating new art.
I found a space to rent here and moved my equipment in December. It’s taken until now to get everything put away and installed.
My boyfriend helped me set up my shelves the other day and on them I put some pottery which I’d moved from my old studio. He’s been wonderful helping me build worktables and installing equipment.
We’re so close to being finished with my space! I am excited to get back to having my hands muddy with clay.
