Amazing creative pottery

Anna (aged 8 years and 3 days) is doing a weekly clay pottery class. It's amazing to be surrounded by the incredible things sitting around drying in the studio. I tend to trip along through life forgetting how incredibly creative humans can be. My eyes have been opened by Anna's class.

These fairy tale towers were made by the class's lovely teacher, Tania Hollatz, to give the children ideas for their own towers. They are freshly made, and still damp.





Anna's made a tower too, but it's not quite ready. Here's her teepee from the first lesson. Who would have thought that pottery could also be a lesson in architecture?


How lucky Anna is to do the class and have her mind opened up to these possibilities! Sometimes it's good to forget sport and academic pursuits and just throw ourselves into creating lovely things.
