Red Sunset Ceramics!

Hello :)

Since I was in high school and fell in love with the pottery wheel I have dreamed of getting my own wheel and kiln and being able to start making my own pottery at home.

Just a couple months ago, I made it a reality.

While it has not been a fast or easy beginning, I am getting my feet off the ground and learning a lot. When I was younger I learned to throw. Now I am learning what it means to own a kiln (in particular a used one that is at least 15 years old... more than that actually?) and I am learning about the ups and downs of selling my created work. I think I always assumed that once I made the pottery, it would, you know, just SELL. I am learning that it is not quite that easy. But again, I am learning, and that is the start of everything.

I was lucky enough to be asked to be part of a summer pop-up shop that focuses on Maine made local crafts. It is open for two months, and started July 1st. If you are interested in seeing my work and the artwork of other local Maine artists, please visit the Creatively Maine Pop-Up in Bucksport, Maine at 74 Main Street, Suite 100, Bucksport, ME; contact them by phone at (207) 323-4982; or online at https://www.facebook.com/creativelymaine/
