I recently tried my hand at pottery and might I just say it's wonderful. The feel of the wet clay in your hands, slowly giving it shape, moulding it to the perfect size, patiently giving it the finishing touch.
Now I look at potters and pottery in a whole new light. Pottery is an art which requires patience, steady hands and above all a clear idea of what you want to make.
The whole experience made me think how we are all potters, the clay we mould is our future. Patiently we need to define it, give it shape through our actions, mould it to our liking : the manner we want it to be. We cannot blame others if the masterpiece of our future is faulty as ultimately we are the ones who made it.
We might not be perfect but the best part is that we can always try again!!
Leaving you with a picture of my masterpiece :
