Pottery making is one of the most ancient art forms on the planet. Producing ceramic pieces can be highly enjoyable and it gives a chance to express ourselves creatively. It can reduce stress and become therapeutic, thus becoming a healthy outlet. It comes to no surprise that many people, including myself, find working with clay a much needed hobby.
I began working with clay about a year ago. I’ve always been interested in trying it, so when I saw a pottery studio near my house I decided to give it a go.

Pottery is an extension of nature and getting to work with clay brings an enormous satisfaction into my life when I’m not out in the wild.
