I am 24, and establishing my first studio. I just finished my B.A. in
Asian Studies/Ceramics. My grandmother and mother did slipcasting, and I
have entered the realm of throwing. I soon hope to inherit my
grandmother's last kiln. Most of the work I sell is to neighbors,
friends, and classmates. I am almost laughed at when I ask older potters
about apprenticeships and such. Most people are sons of potters, or
retired ect. When trying to find places to fire my work, it is nearly
impossible, unless I want to do Raku. And then when I do find a place the
prices are outrageous. I understand the process is expensive, but it
seems to me that many people are very protective of their kilns. I am
looking for a master potter to work with in Washington State. Can anyone
help? Where are all the Master Potters?
