There's something about working with clay that I just love! The smell, the feel, the temperature and even the noise as I squeeze my fingers through it.

The process from start to finish is threefold, preparation, production and ultimately satisfaction as one gets to enjoy the finished product. Of course the process doesn't always end well, but despite this, there is always a sense of excitement as you anticipate the end of a firing and the kiln door is first opened!
