Licks,Love and Luck!

Fetish Ghost

My name is Zygote. I create works for FetishGhost in Stockton, California. For over the past 20 years, I've generally been known for my unique approach to handcrafted sterling macabre. But... it's been over the past 2 years though that I've been building up a clientèle for my October Harvest gift ceramics, (gallery quality seasonal tea ware and large treasure canisters.) This collection was created initially to serve a handful of localized niche markets in Northern California, but with Etsy, the studio is really starting to grow beyond it's preconceived boundaries. I have to admit, it's cool!

I really enjoy creating new works for this collection.My main studio is an old vintage 1920 garage complete with an old leaking roof, basic electrics, and no cooling or heating. I LOVE it! Despite it's exposure to the elements (or because of it), it provides a well ventilated space for all of my work. This has proven a necessity with controlling a healthy work environment that works well with kilns and dusts.

I've also located my photo booth in the root cellar to control the light conditions and my computer is next to my bed. Apparently late nights are the norm when it comes to photo editing and writing all those descriptions. It's archaic and it's still a work in progress, but it seems to get the job done at the moment.
My organizational tip is to invest in a lot of shelving. Plan for storage, but make that extra effort to sell what you have on hand. Sitting on a pile of work helps build-up inventory for special events... but... well, it's really easy to build up too much of a good thing.
Live free and have fun! Come check me out!

Licks, Love, & Luck...-Zygote-
