One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

I’ve been putting off writing this for a while now. For the past month I’ve been going over and over how I wanted to approach talking about what’s been going on in my life and work but the idea of writing about everything that’s been happening was upsetting and I’ve fallen behind. As of the end of June, my studio was evicted. It almost feels like … Continue reading One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Last week in the studio: show me ur brushstrokes

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a pretty inconsistent updater. Keeping up to date across all of my social media platforms is frankly pretty exhausting but it also seems to have become a requirement for being relevant in the “art world.” I understand that self-promotion is important when it comes to building your own business and apparently at least 627 people on Instagram … Continue reading Last week in the studio: show me ur brushstrokes

ICYMI: Rad Artists on Instagram

Despite its somewhat questionable new policy changes (and the constant pleas on my feed to “turn on notifications”), Instagram continues to be one of the best tools I’ve found to connect with other ceramic artists. I’ve discovered so many rad artists through their Instagram feeds. I like seeing how other artists approach their studio practices and seeing how their work changes and evolves over time. … Continue reading ICYMI: Rad Artists on Instagram

More Winter for your Spring

Being an artist and a small business owner can get pretty frustrating sometimes. After unloading a pretty successful firing this past week I realized that if I want to keep making more work in my tiny space, I probably have to find a home for some of the work I already have. Working as an artist suits me well, I get to spend most of my … Continue reading More Winter for your Spring

A Studio Tour with Sarah Duyer (and some chill tunes)

I don’t know about you, but I love seeing other artists’ studio spaces. An artist’s studio space can give you a look at an artist’s process, at all the hours of work behind the scenes and all of the different stages that a piece went through in order to become the final product. In my senior year of college I was #blessed with an amazing studio space. … Continue reading A Studio Tour with Sarah Duyer (and some chill tunes)

Desert Winter

Today my new line of work titled Desert Winter is finally available online! Since I’ve moved to California succulents have become a fascination of mine. I had tried growing them when I lived on the East coast but they always ended up meeting an untimely demise. They were always too cold or under/overwatered and tended to dry up after a month. But they love it here in … Continue reading Desert Winter
