This year I started pottery classes with some of my favourite people in the world. "Artists love artists", Julia Cameron says. And she is not wrong. We have a lovely time!
My very inspirational pottery teacher, Karina van Heerden, happened to turn 90 this year. She is a force of nature. And her expression is passionately rooted in clay.
Under her very knowledgeable tutelage, I have managed to make a few things I like.
This required having the humility and courage to become a beginner again.
Out of my comfort zone and with very thin skin, I didn't always love it but I love the expansive feeling of being creative.
Clay is an interesting medium and one I am not familiar with so my discomfort, tightness and lack of trust are evident in my labours.
Although, I liked this one. I carved a pattern I photographed off some fabric in a shop!
And I liked the roughness of this vase.
I had been longing for a funky quiche dish.
And I LOVE the shot of colour on the inside! Thank you Roz!
I feel abundant and grateful.
My abundance corner.
