An in-depth interview that may help you decide whether you'd like to become a potter.
I call up Kim Deamude on a sunny evening to ask her about her life as a professional potter. What I soon learn is that pottery is only half the story. In addition to managing Pottery of Pelham, the business she runs out of her home studio, Kim also takes care of five children and a farm with her husband. Clearly, this woman has lots of energy—something that only becomes more obvious once she starts talking about her work.
“On my business card,” she tells me, “it says ‘from clay to art’.” She pauses, and I swear I can hear her smiling. “Because a lot of people make bowls—I make art.”
