December already??

It's hard to believe that 2009 is now less than one month away, but exciting to be heading toward the fresh start of a new year. There will certainly be a lot of excitement to kick off January as I move into my new private studio space at Northern Clay Center(!!). I just found out shortly before Thanksgiving that there was a small spot available, and could be mine if I wanted. I've spent some time thinking seriously about my career in clay and trying to develop a good budget covering all of my expenses. I've certainly been using a different part of my brain these past few weeks...

The glaze calc class ends this Thursday, I'm hoping to get in some pots so that I have at least a few finished pieces to show for the last two months of work. I'll be sure to post pictures as soon as the firing is out.

I hope everyone had a great Turkey Day!!

I've heard great things about the Northern Clay Center - should be a great place to work. Looking forward to the photos of your new work - did you learn lots in your glaze class?

Hey Kip, I sent you an email a while back, I hope you got it but it may have gotten filtered.
The gig at NCC sounds great, it sure is an amazing place.
Best. Ron

Hi Kip. I came across your blog from other potters' links and really enjoy your work. A good friend of mine is currently the McKnight artist at NCC (Alyssa Wood) and I think you guys would really enjoy each other's work (and each other). If you get a chance, look her up! Congratulations on the studio!
