Supportive Friends

I am so thankful for my friends, online and in real life.  Having a circle of support is so important to us as artists.  Family doesn't always understand what we do, so its so very important to have friends that can speak our language and understand our needs or concerns. 

Just recently, I was super thankful for one of my potter friends, Liv at Terra Locale Ceramic Studio.  She let me fire my little pieces in her kiln while I was waiting for my studio to be built.  She understood how stressed I was getting because my show is coming up and I have a lot of firing to do.  By firing my stuff in her kiln, I was able to get a head start on glazing and that takes a while.  I am so thankful to her for letting me do that!  And I certainly would return the favor if she ever needed it!  So if you have a moment, head on over to her Facebook page (which is the link on her name), and if you feel inspired to do so, give her a "like" on her pottery page.

Last night, I loaded the kiln with some glazed pieces for their first firing - YAY - and I'm happy that I'll be able to finish everything before I leaving for the ACC show on March 6. Thank you, Liv!

I hope you all are having a great week!  I am :)



  1. We've been without a kiln a time or two, it's not the easiest thing to always have around and running, so I'm very happy for your friend ... the good ones will understand and be there!
    Heading over to FB!

    1. Hey Susan,
      You're right - those kilns can be tricky to keep running! Thanks for zipping over to FB - I appreciate it so much and I know she will too :)

  2. Friends are a blessing, aren't they? =)
    So happy you are up and running again!
    Have a wonderful weekend Kelly!

  3. We are in a similar thought pattern today. I just posted about some of my great artist friends and then came over here and read your post! Potter and artist friends are the very best kind!
