Summer festival season is over for me, and I am now gearing up for my wholesale and consignment store before a holiday season.
We are looking at houses now, and talked with the zoning office and the fire marshal. I had home studio for sixteen years before moving to the current studio. I prefer to have the studio at home. It is easier to control a timing of trimming and will have a shelter (another room) during the firing. I will lose an interaction with another potters and artists in the building. But, I will take the convenience and less studio cost. I have moved my kiln three times, and may need to replace the bricks after another move. So, I may stick around another year at the current location.
