I’m 51. I realize I don’t have forever to live. I want my fifties to be a culmination of my work in the past. I started my ceramics career as a high school teacher at a private boarding school. That’s where I learned to teach a person and not a curriculum - a skill I’m grateful to have. After 6 years there, I decided to focus on my own work. I did shows and exhibits in galleries. I had a studio in Marvel where I had plenty of space, and I could work alone. I spent my late thirties and forties diving into meditation, teaching, and cultivating YUNOMI Pottery Studio.
I’m hoping to spend the next ten years of my life building on the foundations of my past work and pouring energy back into the visions of my art. I’m very excited.
