First Pottery Class for Cream City Clay
Tonight we had our first class for Cream City Clay!
What a lovely group we had tonight. It was such a good sound to hear 6 wheels humming in unison while laughter filled the studio.
Clay is such a change of pace from the work we do all day. It gives us permission to play. We squish, smush, pound and crumple. In class we push and pull and compress and start to see a form develop. The whir, whir, whir of the wheel is so calming that we don’t even remember what we were stressing about all day. Muscles relax and breathe. Clay recycles, there are no mistakes. Each person gets unlimited do overs. It allow us to ask the question, “I wonder what would happen if I do this?” and when it looks great “Ahhhhh” and when it looks smushed……..laughter*
Looking forward to all of the new work they will make!
