Moving Back to California!

I am excited to announce that I will be moving back to California! There's a lot of planning to do in the next month, but I will be moving to San Francisco at some point in September once we find a place to live and an art studio to set up shop. I can't wait to be a part of the artisan community in San Francisco, be closer to my family in Los Angeles, and explore and be inspired by a new city. 

Currently, I'm trying to figure out how to move my wheel, kiln, work table, bags of glaze materials, and shelves out there. The studio has just as much stuff to move as our home, so this will be a big endeavor. If anyone knows any studios in SF looking to rent to a ceramicist, please let me know.
