Beauty in the Mundane

I walked into a Pottery Shop in 1996 and twenty four years later I am the owner/potter of this pottery, the FINDHORN POTTERY.
I came to Findhorn to participate in a three month arts course, which included a month in the pottery. Never having experienced clay before, as soon as I touched it I was smitten. I abandoned all the other workshops on the course and immediately apprenticed myself to the then potter. I never went home and instead became the Findhorn Potter.
Initially I was drawn to the process of making, called pinch potting. Holding a ball of clay in one hand and slowly shaping the pot by "pinching" it with the other hand. I just loved the slow meditative feeling of this technique. I did nothing else for seven years. Eventually a heart to heart with my mentor convinced me that I really needed to learn to thrown on the potter's wheel. The initial resistance wore off after I finally managed to master the first step of this difficult technique - the centering. Now I love it and it is my favourite technique for making the domestic pottery which so inspires me.
I love making everyday objects. They might be considered mundane, but I only see beauty. Beauty in the mundane has become my mantra.
