After my exit show at Pottery Northwest I had to move out, (as the residency is only for 2 years). They have a lovely way of putting it, which is: it's not The End, we are just changing our relationship -- I will continue to teach there and be a part of the community.
As a new home, I found myself a 300 square foot studio space at Georgetown’s Equinox Studios. EQ is bubbling over with creative people from blacksmiths and painters, to installation artists, costumers and a few clay folks too. It is a really friendly, warm community and there's always something bizarre happening. From forklift acrobatics, to three wheel trikes popping wheelies outside my window -- there's always a distraction. My first day in the studio I saw someone showing up at 5:25pm on a Tuesday afternoon, riding one of the community BMX with a fresh growler fill for the evening. It was then, that I was certain I knew I was going to like it here.
If you are curious to know more, here’s a little thirty minute segment that aired on local TV just weeks after I moved in. You can see my hands at work about 2 minutes in, and there are a few ambiance shots of my studio space towards the end too.
