Apprenticeship Needed

Hello all,

I'm a senior ceramics major at Furman University, a liberal arts university in Greenville, South Carolina. I am looking around (everywhere!) for an apprenticeship/studio assistant position for the next year.

I graduate in May and am hoping to find a place in a studio where I can be of any help in exchange for a little working space/ use of kilns. I'm curious, eager and very hardworking. I currently am the teacher's assistant for the throwing class and studio tech for our studio. I also interned for the American Craft Council with their Baltimore show last month and have worked with my local arts non-profit group.

Some images of my work and my full academic/creative CV can be found at : http://marybaugh.blogspot.com

the CV can be found under the 2008 archive on the right side, it's the first post (so at the bottom).

Feel free to pass that link along to anyone you know who might have a studio opening coming up within the next year.

Thanks so much for any guidance you may be able to give,

Mary Baugh mary.baugh@gmail.com
