Transparency/safety note

My studio is quite small (a 1 car garage attached to my home), with the bathroom inside the house. It will be important that our personalities are a good fit.

If you have studio space to work off-site where you can do remote work like handbuilding on slipcast pieces, that's a plus. 

We have a small baby at home and Covid safety is important to us. Applicant must be vaccinated and disclose if they are feeling unwell. I will do the same.

Must be comfortable with dogs.
