Narissa Huq-Schede's Profile
My passion for clay started relatively recently and quite by chance some seven years ago. Due to repetitive strain I had severely injured my fingers and had to take a break for them to heal. My daughter’s play box lay invitingly open with a lump of clay. I thought that would work well to exercise my damaged joints, after a while it got a bit tedious and I decided to make something out of that clay. To my surprise, lo and behold, out came my first creature, a lioness. Until this day she looks on and encourages me.
Completely besotted with this medium, I have given up practicing my original profession (dentistry) and since never looked back.
However, I do give credit to the profession as it did introduce me to the many materials such as porcelain, wax and plaster to name a few. Today I happily incorporate some of them in my work. So thank you...
