In the making...

 

Craftsmanship is about doing and making things well. Every creative process is full of uncertainties but changes will bring new discoveries.

 

In pottery, you often have to go through many steps and fail many times until you learn how to handle your pot with ease. By then, you will probably find that you can never be at ease because there are always things to learn when it comes to throwing, glazing and firing. 

 

By sharing the creative process of my pottery works, I hope to encourage more people to experience the fun of playing with clay and learn to appreciate the beauty in the flaws.
