…the shelves in my atelier are filled up with very personal and beautiful pieces that my students made during the last three workshops here in Modi.

I’m always amazed at how different the objects turn out from the same starting point – a lump of clay. It’s nice to see ideas getting realized and other ones turning into something totally different and unexpected… and often even better!

Sometimes one struggles, has to start all over again, sometimes it just falls into place and you don’t know how it happened… Either way, each piece has gone through a whole creative process with personal energy and effort put into it and that’s exactly what makes them so personal and unique. And they bring you a lot of joy.

But right now our pottery work is still sitting on the shelf, drying and waiting to get fired, glazed and fired again – that’s the second part of the process to get the pottery work finished.

If you want to know how they turn out, don’t miss the next post where I will put photos of the finished objects.

Meanwhile, you can enjoy some impressions from the workshops.


For those who are interested in participating in the next Ceramic Workshops, please note that there probably won’t be any before November because I will be busy during the tourist season. In case I find a gap for a Day Workshop end of June / beginning of July, I will let you know.

The best way to stay informed about new dates of Ceramic Workshops and other news from the Touching Clay world, is to subscribe and you will get a message as soon as news are out.

I wish you all a happy and creative week!
