There's something magical about the feeling of a ceramics studio.✨
•
•
Certain places give us a feeling of warmth, comfort + security. •
•
There are spaces that feel bright, wide open + freeing. ✨
•
•
Places that inspire, humble and put us at ease🙏
•
•
When I'm in a ceramics studio, I feel all of these things and more. 
I feel at Home here.🏺
•
•
What kind of spaces do you value?💗 Where do you feel most comfortable, safe and free?

What is Home to you?💡

As if this cheesecake wasn’t enough to make my day.... just kidding 😂 My Auntie Cole came home from IL to visit which makes this whole month brighter through my eyes. We went to @portlandpotterycafe for the first time, which was amazing! (Cheesecake is from there. I gobbled up my breakfast before I could take a photo ☺️) She surprised me with this beautiful pottery that I had been eyeing and I’m obsessed. 
I’m beyond lucky to have a built in best friend and practically older sister like you in my life. We love you to the moon ❤️ with lots of tears and back. @iamnicolelam

Walking on the Presumpscot river preserve trail. Found so much beauty, texture and mushrooms! Nothing like a walk in nature to find inspiration.

I'm trying to get as much done, and pieces into the kiln, before we depart Maine. I worked on my Forthright logo tile today, first applying a black underglaze then cutting and scraping through to the bare clay, marking a cross hatched background. I trimmed and underglazed a cup for the kiln too. These are probably the last two pieces I'll be able to make up at Portland Pottery.

I spent the late morning at Portland Pottery, working on a couple pieces. I was able to ready another tile, about 9"×9", with my Forthright logo on it. I'm hoping it gets bisque fired soon. I also worked on a miniature version of my cylindrical birdhouse. Finally, I thought I'd try my hand at fabricating a couple of tools - we'll see.

Shelby and I headed up to Portland Pottery to get our ceramics on this morning. I'm making some progress on the birdhouse - got the body trimmed out, rolled and joined into a nice cylinder, added a base and cut the entrance hole. The copper roof I made the other day will fit nicely; I just need to finalize a method of mounting it. Letting it dry now and I'll get it ready for bisque firing on Monday or Tuesday.

These were made by men in their 50’s at a family holiday party. “I want a golden chalice like in Game of Thrones.” 😂 clay gives something to everyone. #portlandpotterymaine #afcchamps
