As we near the grand opening for Flowers + Clay on July 20-21, I’ve been looking back to the beginnings of the land project to remind myself of how far we have come.
At 27 I graduated from university and bought the house you see in the background, which I proceeded to intentionally set on fire, which is the quickest and cheapest way to get rid of a house.
That was the beginning of it all.
I partially renovated an airstream and moved it out to the land. I built an outhouse and started building the big kiln in the summer of 2017.
I had really had no idea what I was getting myself into but looking back on it I think I had the right balance of perseverance and naïveté to be able to pull this crazy thing off.
Thanks to everyone who has been a part of this and helped me out through the years.
It’s truly been a team effort.
