"Pottery has taught me the importance of slowing down, and the acceptance of failure. It’s a therapeutic practice as it requires focus whilst creating, meaning you can leave your troubles behind for a while. Pottery also provides us plenty of opportunities to day dream about our next creations! I believe that everybody’s clay creations hold beauty because they express the makers personality, style and progress."
