My love of clay has seen my hobby turn into an obsession that has now taken over half of one level of my home. I began my clay journey with throwing on the wheel, and was delighted to be given a pottery wheel for my birthday 9 years ago. I now also own two kilns, buckets of glaze, and a myriad of tools and miscellany to make beautiful creations.

I find clay play to be very mindful - that's why I refer to it as my 'muditation'. Its ability to reduce stress and feelings of anxiety is also quite therapeutic.
