I should be a potter. I have a degree in fine arts (pottery) from UF. But after I graduated, my big dreams of making a living as a potter were replaced with bills and mortgage payments and "real" jobs. I have a studio with all my gear in it, I just never use it. I have no way to glaze fire my work. I work in cone 10 porcelain and stoneware, with celedons mostly. Soda firing is my ideal atmosphere, and unless the kiln fairy shows up with a load of bricks and some burners, I don't know what I'm gonna do.
I've been inspired lately and I may just clean up my studio tonight and get my hands dirty.
It would be nice if their were a pottery/ceramics board here. Might keep me motivated and inspired.
If anyone has any questions relating to pottery, I likely have the answer or could at least get it. Feel free to ask.
