Ceramics is not exactly an easily mobile art form. And depending on what you are making, it can take up a fair bit of space. So what the heck do you do when you move to New York City, but you know you are only going to be there for 2-4 years? And yet, you are fresh in the beginning stages of getting your business off the ground? Well, that’s exactly what Alex Olson is working on figuring out and this week we’re talking all about it, along with the reality of trying to build new healthy routines - both physically to ensure the longevity of working in clay, and mentally, when leaving in as busy of a place as NYC - that keep us inspired for the long game of making a living from the things we make.
Next week is our "off" week here on the podcast. 3 out of every 4 weeks, we air new episodes, but on that 4th week I send out our free Photo Tips Email Newsletter. And we're kicking off 2023 in a big way - Sending out a photo tips email all about GLARE. Be sure to not miss out by adding your email to the list at: makersplaybook.com/newsletter (And if you are listening to this episode well after the air date, don't worry! You can still add your email to the list and send me a message to get the tips all on glare at any point!)
