Brick and Black Walnut a Perfect Combo for a Pottery Display
Here's is my recently completed pottery display I have added to my basement ceramic studio. I love how the brick and black walnut looks with my earthy wood and soda fired pots. In addition, it's fun how this space echoes how pots might look stacked up on shelves inside a big kiln. I still have no idea what this space was used for as their are no openings for flues, but it has become a wonderful space to display pottery in the home.

We were on a tight budget with this kitchen remodel, and wanted to spend less than $1000 to give it the rustic cottage kitchen feel that we love so much. And let's be honest, I loved exposed shelving to show off my pottery collection.

Today was my first day touching clay this summer, if you don't count moving bags of clay in and out of moving trucks. So excited to have my potter's wheel and workbench set up in my new basement studio in Rocky Hill, CT.
Get ready to see some different work as I embark on a journey of leaving my aesthetic of soda and wood fired pots behind. Ready or not experimental pots here I come.

It's still hard for me to believe I have left my Milwaukee studio, garden, and community behind as this move to Connecticut happened so quickly.
Ps. Sheet vinyl flooring, if you do not have a clean concrete pad, is the best choice for flooring in a ceramic studio as it is super easy to mop and their are no grooves for clay dust to gather in. And sheet vinyl flooring is water proof.

Reveal of Upper Unit
This upper duplex unit resides in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is a 1917 Milwaukee Bungalow that was converted into a duplex. Enjoy the pictures of this upper unit. This unit is probably my favorite as it has more natural lighting. The bonus of it being an upper is that has the charm of angular ceilings, small windows, and still has some built in. In addition, we converted the unit into having an open floor plan for living and kitchen space.
Enjoy the mix of old home charm with a little bit of a modern facelift.
