TikTok and Hats...
I keep seeing TikTok videos that use a song that goes something like... "It cost that much because it takes me F**ing hours". To many people that can seem offensive, but I got to say, I can now totally relate.
As a one-person show I am wearer of all "hats". I am designer, materials purchaser, mold maker, wheel thrower, hand-builder, kiln tech, glazer, glaze tester, kiln tech again, photographer, web designer, email answerer, sales rep., studio cleaner, studio tech, packager and social media promoter. There may be a few hats I'm missing but you get the point. Always striving to improve each of these roles along the way.
All said and done, I am loving every single hat!
I can't take all the credit though. I have to give a huge shout-out to my hubby for his amazing 3D printing skills. He prints mold forms for me, from which I create plaster molds for slip casting some of my pieces. Enjoying collaborating our hobbies to make some pots that hopefully, people can enjoy.
