Here's the article I wrote for this month's for Ceramics Monthly. I very much appreciative their support and interest in my story, and I hope you enjoy reading it here, republished with their permission.
For those of you paying close attention, the dog in the picture is Shelby, not Jones. Shelby is my "dog-daughter" a blond lab, and when her Dad used to travel for work she'd be with me in the studio. A few months before we got Jones, Shelby's Dad started traveling less, and so we made room for my new studio pup Jones. If you want to see him at work in the studio have a look here on instagram.
the title makes me a little uncomfortable,
I'm still very much me,
my job just changed a little.
