Moving Forward

After much confusion & discomfort I have chosen to let go of my beautiful shop & studio in Vredehoek.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve been here for almost a year. It’s been blissful. My life has completely changed since moving into this magical, healing space. And now my work here is done and it’s time to move on.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Besides for the fact that COVID took its toll financially, lockdown & the journey I embarked on during lockdown changed me profoundly. I crave quiet solitude to create and be. I want to operate at my own time, at my own pace. I want to be a more present mom. I want to be at home. I want to be free. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Making this decision was not an easy one. My ego was not happy. “Who will you be without this space”, “how will you reach others”, “how will anyone understand who you are without this shop”? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Through these past months I’m deeply understanding that no external attachments can give me anything that I can give myself. I have everything I need within me to be the light I need to be, to do the work I need to do, to be understood, loved, accepted. And so do you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And I already feel another door opening.💫⠀⠀⠀⠀
From end July I’ll be making, selling (by appointment) & hosting workshops from my home in Vredehoek.

And of course my online shop at klompceramics.com will continue to trade as per usual.
