Dani Montoya - Potter
My playground is in Social Media and I spend a lot of time in the studio photographing the studio, the studio cats, my process, my failed pieces and most importantly, my finished pieces.   When my hot kiln is first opened Facebook knows about it. Videos of my process as well as other studio happenings are published to Instagram. And let’s not forget Pinterest. Feel free to “pin away”

So if you are on these platforms I invite you to follow me!

And if you are not, please consider signing up for my newsletter.  I don’t send these out too often but I do try to let you know what is going on!
