A few weeks ago, I was contacted through Etsy by Carmen of Orimui, who wanted to know if I'd be interested in doing an interview for the UK Clay Users, a group of British based artisans specialising in all sorts of clay. I had recently joined their team on Etsy, and I was delighted to have been asked. What followed was a thought-provoking, enlightening and above all fun experience whereby Carmen emailed me single questions, and I emailed my replies. In this way, we built up an ongoing dialogue that was much more revealing and participatory than just working through a list of questions.
As a result, this has been the most in-depth interview I have ever given, and I am so glad to have had the chance to reflect on my journey so far. Thank you, Carmen, and happy reading!
