What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

Finding drawings and supplies to put on the ceramic pictures. Whether that be applying cursive writing but so it can look store bought and not hand written. If I was to hand write the words it would be nice to find ways that I can make them very neat. Possibly try to find ways for me to draw things on the cermic pieces. I am not a good drawer though.

Actions I’ve taken so far

Plan on buying a poyyery wheel and also plan on taking a ceramics class so that I can have hands on experience. Written down some words and phrases that I would put on the pieces or name them after.

My future goals

My future goals would be to master pottery and combine to areas of work that I am highly interested in which is pottery and poetry/ literature. I would like t develop sophisticated work that can be respected and possibly bring in some profit although that is not what I am after. Also, I would not ask for much profit and would benefit from anything that was giving to me. Every penny counts and I would just be grateful to recieve something back and be recognized.

My motivations to work with a mentor

To possibly get more insight on how to improve my work and develop more of a thoughtout plan. Also possibly getting some help on where to get certain materials and how I can make them look presentable while still being true to myself.


About my venture

Antsy

Mixing the arts of cermics with literature such as pottery is something that I would like to establish. Making handmade pieces and being able to write messages on them but in a sophisticated way. Also, including different drawings or figures on the ceramic art work that would look professional, intriguing, and having it tell a story. Being able to target different types of people and audiences with unique interests.
