You know what would be fun? Getting together a group of potters, and giving them a limited number of materials to work with–say one or two clay bodies, and one or two glazes–and having them all go home and make stuff for a week. And then firing everything together, and seeing how varied the results are. I bet you’d get some really neato-cool results.

My name is Maaike Charron, and I'm a potter in St. John's, Newfoundland. I started fiddling around with pottery in summer 2006, when I was told volunteering in the local clay studio would get me free studio time. I mostly taught myself, spending a lot of time poring over books, magazines and websites, and occasionally pestering the more advanced (but very helpful) potters around me with questions. After about two years, I decided I'd gotten good enough to go into business for myself. This blog, started after my first big craft fair, was created to document the process of becoming a wondrously succesful craftsperson. (Or it will document How Not To Do It. We'll see.)
