Washing and Dusting

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”

Pablo Picasso

I am usually exhausted coming home from working in a laboratory all day. Sometimes, I practice yoga or read on the couch but most of the time, I find myself reaching for that clay. I don’t consider pottery “work”. Throwing on a wheel is therapeutic–the every day stresses of life just melts away. I plan on having instructional videos up one day and you’ll see what I mean! But for now…I’ll take it one day at a time.

The coffee cups in the featured image above are custom made for a very special person. He is technically my first customer! The other pieces are items that I will be posting on my etsy shop soon. It’s amazing how far I’ve come with practice. Have you seen my very first piece (see first post)?!
