Creating with Clay
Working and creating with clay can be an interesting and therapeutic artistic experience
Clay is such a wonderful medium to work with. It allows us the joy of creating a functional piece pottery from the very beginning, while learning and developing skills.
As a Ceramic Artist, I love my craft and the work I am able to create.
A huge part of my love affair with clay has been sharing and passing on the techniques that I have learned in my journey.
