People say you need to get out there...show your work, sell yourself! Get a website. Get a blog going. Get some business cards!
If this is a question.. I'm still trying to figure it out before I can come up with the answer.
Since this is new, an introduction is in order.
Hey! My name is Bobby. I'm finishing up my undergrad degree at Utah State University in Logan, Utah. I'm not from here. I had never even been to Utah until two days before I started school, back in January of 2007. I grew up in Roseburg, Oregon. Roseburg is a small, two lumber-mill town near the southwest corner of the State. It's nestled in the Umpqua Valley and is a blip along the I-5 highway.
I learned to pot while in Highschool. From 10th grade on it was normal for me to have clay all over my pants and shirts, the other kids didn't make fun of me that long, and in fact, I wore that clay with pride, knowing I was pulling away from the norm (well, I had never been normal, but I never did wear it on my sleeve until then). Having clay all over your pants and sleeves doesn't go over too well at home, though. Mom literally had to stop me before I came inside the house to make me remove the clothes I was wearing. Oh bless-ed furniture! Keep it clean!
Before this gets too long, I'll skip about 10 years of the story and put myself back into the present.
Why blog now?
Getting closer to the end of my time in Logan, I'm about to put myself out there into the world as a studio artist. Perhaps it's time to get that following people say is so important.
My blog will focus on my adventures with clay, and not much else. I don't want this to be a personal account of my daily doings, instead I will show you what projects I'm working on and things I experience that are involved with or are influencing my work.
I hope you enjoy it.
Here are some of the latest pots I've been working on. They're all salt fired porcelain to a about cone 7.
