My passion for pottery started around a decade ago during a pottery class. I was fascinated by the process of transforming a lump of clay into something functional or aesthetically pleasing. If you’ve ever been the slightest bit intrigued about how bowls, vases, and planters are made, take a break from the daily grind and experience an interesting activity.
