Work In Progress Podcast

Nov 28 2019 • 1 hr 12 mins



This episode is about how Lauren transitioned from working in the restaurant and hospitality industry to creating custom ceramics full time.

Lauren graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ceramics and Bachelor of Science in Arts Education so she has been working with clay since college. While pursuing her career in the Carribean she took a break from it . When she moved back, she started working in a studio again, but just part time for a couple of hours a week.

What encouraged Lauren to take the leap and start working in the studio full time? And how does she handle the transition so well? What about the finances? Tune in to find out!

I am so excited to share her story with you and I hope her story inspires you just like it did for me. Without further adieu, this is Lauren’s work in progress story!
