United States > > > with Anastasia in Spain

It all started when...

I have been working as a ceramicist for about three years and was hoping to pick up some new skills.

Anastasia welcomed me into her home, introduced me to her joyful family, showed me sights, beaches and local ceramicists that inspire her. She works with an abundance of clays and techniques- the learning was exponential. We completed a pit fire (something very hard to find in NYC), had many discussions on the craft and became friends.

The concept of VAWAA is novel and inspiring in itself! I’m eager to keep expanding my horizons and can’t wait to try out new ideas in my studio. I also traveled alone for two weeks for the first time and now am comfortable with the idea of going even further out of my comfort zone.
