My mom has been making pottery for over 30 years, and she is my mentor. Whenever I am working on a new design, she helps me to make it more functional. She suggests ideas like making poppy bowls in various sizes. Mom also checks everything that comes out of the kiln and decides if something is first quality, so my work has the same quality standards as a professional.
