Just bought two of Tilly Troelstrup’s lovely pieces. You may have seen some of her work exhibited at NCECA. I have enjoyed learning from and alongside this girl who will kick your butt into gear if you’re slacking on work. I started out being thoroughly intimidated by her and then got over myself and realized she’s a true gem.
Now she’s moving on to bigger and better things in Colorado! I can’t imagine my ceramics network here in central Illinois dispersing like it is but I don’t get a say, now do I? So best of luck to you, Tilly! Thanks for always looking out for me. You’re a real wonder.
