I’ve been making ceramics for about 4 years. I started down this venture as a hobby, but it’s gotten to where half of my week or more is spent making or shipping ceramics. When I moved from TX to AZ, I lucked into a great studio space. At that time, a design client commissioned some illustrated plates from me and when they were done, I put them up on my Instagram. A bunch of friends and family members started requesting them, and I began selling on Etsy and marketing through Instagram. It grew from there.
