I remember having to write “poetry” in senior school. What a nightmare! I didn't end up writing poetry but instead putting in words some vivid imagery of a clay sculptor painstakingly bringing the material to life and then shattering it to pieces. I guess it was a good reaction to my teenage angst and rebellion at the time, LOL.
In any case some 12 years later I still find working the hands into the clay medium especially by the rhythmical spinning wheel…very soothing. From a alternative therapeutic viewpoint it is connecting with the earth = very grounding… A good form of stress relief! Not sure why but I am so drawn to natural materials…ceramics, glass, stone, wood, shell, plant, metal…you will always find lots of these in my house. I guess it is my way of bringing nature into the house. I guess that is why I also really like animals :D
