  • work until you die

    Recently I had the pleasure of collaborating with Sean Thompson using his linocut art. When I saw his work I knew we had a shared ideology and this design would make a great mug. The test pieces came out pretty good and I am looking forward to putting these into production! I really love discovering…

  • The business of Pottery – part 1 (Tax)

    I’m a few years into existing as a GST-registered sole-trader with an online shop, stockists, in-person sales, and claiming pottery as a business expense on my tax return with IRD.

Back in February I ran a giveaway on my Instagram page for Waitangi Day in which I asked people to suggest resources for decolonisation. I intentionally left ‘resources’ very…

  • Nice Assets Academy closing for winter (maybe forever?)

    Thanks everybody who booked in for a lesson, course, or workshop in the last 6 months. It’s been a whirlwind and a huge learning curve for me not only on how to teach pottery, but how to manage teaching alongside working full-time and my own making. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know people through pottery…
