Hiring a studio employee who will work closely with artist/creative director/business owner Sarah Kersten to run the ceramic production studio in West Berkeley. This hands-on position will involve slip casting, glazing, loading kilns, firing kilns, quality control, and shipping. Work with Sarah and her part time assistants in a leadership role, as you learn to manage the day-to-day operations in the production studio. Contribute ideas about studio work flow and growth as the business continues to expand. This is a step beyond a studio assistant position; we're looking for someone who can take responsibility for our production operation, allowing Sarah to continue to develop new work and effectively manage the business.
