Artist of the day: Jim Gottuso
Jim is a ceramics artist living in Louisville, Kentucky whose story was of particular interest to me. After news of his first child Jim decided to give up the work he was doing and follow his passion for making ceramics. It was a gutsy move. I keep thinking that having my first child almost compelled me to consider finding a "real job", so Jim is a great reminder to me that this is a real job, worthy of pursuing against the odds and that being fulfilled as an artist can translate to being an amazing parent as well.
