On this episode of the podcast, I meet James Griffiths. James is a pottery artist living in Madison WI. James had started out working in retail but wanted to try making pottery full-time. We talk about how that transition to a full-time artist started and how James ended up opening their own pottery studio called The Kiln Shed in a space on Madison's east side!
