Meet Lindsay Oesterritter.
I am honored and excited to announce that I am putting the finishing touches on this book! It will be published in October, but is available for preorder now.

She held the position of Assistant Professor of Ceramics at Western Kentucky University (2009-2015) and earned Associate Professor in 2015. Lindsay had the fortune to be a resident artist at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg and in Australia at Strathnairn Arts Association. She has had the opportunity to lecture and exhibit nationally and internationally and is continually inspired by the craft community.
How do you spend your time outside of the studio?
Outside of the studio I spend a lot of time with my family of 4. My husband Jason and I have a one year old, Micah, and a three year old, River, that keep us very busy. We enjoy exploring the outdoors, travelling, working in the garden, and relaxing in a hammock. I also love cooking, working on an occasional book binding project, reading, and am a beginner knitter and sewer.
Where do you go for inspiration?
All afternoon, Sir, your ambassadors have been turning into lakes and rivers. At first they were just clouds, like any other. Then they swelled and swirled; then they hung very still; then they broke open. This is, I suppose, just one of the common miracles, a transformation, not a vision, not an answer, not a proof, but I put it there, close against my heart, where the need is, and it serves
the purpose. I go on, soaked through, my hair slicked back; like corn, or wheat, shining and useful.
