I've always loved handmade things, especially pottery. I took classes for a few years at Mud, Sweat & Tears in NYC and then shared studio space in Hoboken, NJ. I gave that up when pottery was no longer a hobby and too much like a second full time job.
When I retired 5 years ago from a very long career as VP Human Resources & Administration for a national non-profit, I needed to reinvent myself. I enrolled in a local art school and took jewelry classes, but the pottery studio in the basement intrigued me. So I took a pottery class. There I met my current partners and after a couple of years everything just clicked into place for us to begin our own working studio. I feel like I am living my dream!
