Friiiiiday! This week was pretty ho-hum, but today totally made up for it. I spent the afternoon photographing oyster platters and a staff lunch at Haand, the ceramics company I work for. The vibe at Haand always breathes new life into my soul. There’s no shortage of inspiring conversations about work and life in the studio. It’s never surface chitchat either, it’s always meaningful and usually motivational in terms of producing creative work and moving towards your passions in some form or another. Each time I pull out of the dirt driveway that leads to the studio, I’m feeling immensely grateful for the opportunity to cross paths with so many creative makers on a weekly basis.
I also had a chance to catch up with Haand’s artist in residency, Ian Henderson. After talking to Ian for a few minutes, I realized we followed a similar path of wandering through the arts. Ian is only at Haand for a week, but the studio time has allowed him to play around with a particular type of mold making that he’s been interested in for years. Ian works full time at Penland’s metal workshop and in the evenings and on weekends he is grinding away in his basement working with cement. He creates massive tile installations that are quite breathtaking. The more I talk to folks like Chris Pence, Mark Warren and Ian Henderson, the more I want to surround myself with other artists and creative types. Are you surrounding yourself with a tribe you admire? I hope so 🙂
