Why I love Pottery
Pottery encompasses my senses. I love the smell of wet clay. I know it may sound weird, but something about the smell of wet earth calls to my soul. I love how it feels to glide my fingers over the clay as I shape a vessel.
I feel at peace when I am working with clay. When I make a piece, I feel like I’m taking a little piece of my soul and a piece of clay and putting them together to create something that is both beautiful and useful. I believe that (for the most part) pottery should not just be about “sittin’ pretty,” it should also be practical. Sculpture is an entirely different matter because its sole purpose is to be pretty or emotionally moving.
I have been a potter since 1992. I still feel passionately about it after all this time. Pottery is spiritual for me…
