My first studio at the co-op was referred to as the “sweet spot”. It was in a corner on the first floor and was outfitted with a borrowed wedging table, a flimsy shelf from my attic, a found desk and a squeaky rolling chair from my dad’s basement. The wheel and stool were on lease from Mid South ceramics. It was bare bones basic and I was thrilled to have a place to work!
Just before leaving for Burma, I secured a studio at the Clay Lady’s Artist Co-op. I had taken a couple classes at the Clay Lady’s Studio and was excited when the co-op opened to the public. There you’ll find dozens of working artists in their studios and galleries of their work throughout. It’s a supportive and exciting community of creatives, all in one awesome space. We share kilns and other equipment and the co-op is connected to Mid South Ceramics, which makes purchasing clay, glaze and other supplies as easy as walking out the back door. If you are ever in Nashville, come by the Co-op to see it for yourself. Check out the roster here!
