i’m going through some things over here, and i have to apologize, but things around here are going to be changing. i started blogging in 2010 when i graduated from school. i lost access to the ceramics studio and felt i had no where to turn to let out my creativity. so blogging became my outlet. today, i have a bitchin’ studio down in my basement, and orders are coming in. and fast! i’m having a hard time balancing all of the tasks at hand, and that’s a hard thing to admit. i want to be able to do it all, but i realize i’m coming up short. i actually can’t do it all. not right now at least.
this afternoon i was glazing pottery and listening/half-watching an episode of Parks and Recreation when a Mr. Ron Swanson said something that really struck a chord. “never half-ass two things. whole-ass one thing.”
. . . . .
i am first and foremost a ceramic artist. that does not mean i’m not a blogger, but my heart is in it for the clay, and that is where i have to focus my efforts. while my business is gaining momentum and things are starting to fall into place. i have to commit myself to my ceramics.
this doesn’t mean i won’t be blogging. i’ll still be here, but i can’t commit as much of myself to my blog as i have been. i’m sorry for that. but i’m trying to remind myself how great it feels to be selling work consistently. i’m happy guys.
i love this blog. i attribute any and all of my success to starting this blog. i just wanted to clue you in on my random absences.
