One of my favorite parts of being a potter is being able to share my skills and my love for clay with others. A few times a year I work with the 4-H ers here in Haywood County making pottery for a day. This year we made sculptures of fish and sculptures of birds in a nest.
Usually we start with an assignment and before long the kids are over flowing with ideas of what to make next. I love giving them their initial "assignment" and watching how kids let their creativity go crazy. They don't hold anything back. Its amazing! And not to mention inspirational!
