Lindsay was kind enough to answer a few questions for Koromiko, despite feeling under the weather for the last few weeks – and to let us a look inside her studio where she creates her functional, yet awesomely beautiful objects for everyday use. I love Lindsay’s advice below to just begin. So many times we put off our dreams, because we feel it’s not the right time, and if only we had this completed, or that in place we would be ready – just begin! And you will surprise yourself with what can be achieved a step at a time.
How long have you been making ceramics for?
I started making ceramics in 2005, so eight years now. I began Suite One Studio in 2009, a decision that pushed my work further than anything else.
What was it for you that made you realize throwing clay was something you wanted to spend your days doing?
From my very first ceramics class I knew the wheel was where I wanted to be. I remember clearly even now, the first time I watched my instructor throw on the wheel. It was positively mesmerizing. I hadn’t even tried it myself yet, but I knew then somehow that I’d found my “thing.”
