We all know that being an artist is an incredibly rewarding job but it’s also a lot of grueling hours and hard work. One of the most successful ways in which we as artists can help educate the buying public about the value of handmade objects is to share our stories and our processes with them. 

Make and Do and National Clay Week want to share these unique stories and processes with the world. We’re asking you to share with us little peeks inside your studio to help share the “behind the scenes” of what goes into each mug, bowl, sculpture, and work of art.

It’s easy to participate:
Step one – go to work on Monday morning (October 10th)
Step two – take a picture of what you’re working on in the studio that day.
Step three – tag it with #mondaymorningmaker and @nationalclayweek and @make_and_do_ceramics
Step four – upload it to your instagram account.

The rest is up to us!
So sit back and follow @make_and_do_ceramics to see into the studios of artists around the world.
Some submissions will also be shared on @potsinaction on Monday so send us your best photos.

And as always please help us spread the word by sharing this post. Maybe even send it to a few artists who you’ve been dying to see what they’ve been up to!
