Hera: Describe yourself in one word
What got you into ceramics
I had to add more art credits in college to graduate so took ceramix then got back into it a year ago by randomly signing up for a class.
Favorite part about your craft
Getting messy enough to not be able to answer phone/textz/social mediaz -then completely go mind blank and focus on the clay. So, basically I black out.
Most difficult part
Being patient and letting go of stuff bc a lot can go wrong in the process of making a piece.
What you like about working with your chosen medium/materials
I love how it's all clay but changes shape throughout the whole process and turnz into something recognizable. Dirt ---ACCIO CUP!
Most satisfying piece you've ever made
Er... maybe in class when I threw my first legit vessel that could be fired and hold coffee.
Local, women-run businesses or women artists you are loving right now
Pump up jam you listen to while working in the studio
MuggleCast Podcast, Twin Peaks Rewatch Podcast, and A Twin Peaks Podcast: A Podcast about Twin Peaks. If you can't tell already, I'm a nerd. On music dayz I've been liking Bush Tetras, Talk Talk, and Oingo Boingo. I can't listen to my more aggressive power metal like DragonForce or I will ruin all that I throw that day.

One sentence of advice to a lady trying to start her own business
Forget about everyone else who is "Already doing it" because no one is you and no one can create exactly what you will create.
When can we buy your pieces online!
Still working on making enough pieces to sell!! A few will be available to purchase in August at Harbor Salon in Silverlake :)
