Exciting news! Today I was approved to be an independent artist at the pottery studio where I've been going since February.
This means that I can go work there anytime someone is in the office to hand out the key (usually 8 AM-9PM). Now I can work for as long as I want, totally unsupervised. My creative flow won't be interrupted anymore by the end of a class. I can make use of the studio slab roller and all the special glazes. I can fire my pieces in the studio kiln. All for a very small fee that amounts to the cost of daily cup of really cheap coffee.
I set this goal for myself several months ago. Feels good to have reach it!
It's the beginning of many new and wonderful things.
