If You Build It, They Will Come
So about a year ago, my family and I purchased a sweet little property in Tumalo, Oregon. Tumalo is a quaint community right outside of Bend, Oregon. The property had a lovely log home with a dilapidated pole barn. I knew the pole barn would be a great space for my pottery studio. I wanted a space where I could continue to create, I could hold community classes, and maybe bring in a few artists every summer to teach interesting workshops.
My family, along with a few contractors, and I worked hard to get the space usable. I was able to begin working in the studio this past fall and was back in production. During the new year, I was able to offer my first community classes like Date Night and Friday Night with Clay.
