What a fabulous week it was! The extraordinary exercise of developing hand building skills with Frances’s dedicated teaching, by which the stretching of time occurred.
Slowing right down to the process meant that a productive and well-structured week emerged.
The body of work at the end was beautiful, enriching and rewarding. With Spirit, Body and Soul nurtured, the time spent, got embodied in timeless vessels to bridge what can pass, the essence of ones doing to be still present, when all else has gone.
Frances Marr’s skill of knowing how to pack and entrust the pots to the fire and let the gods do their magic, brought 100% success rate in the firing.
We had perfect working conditions, sitting on the tranquil terrace of the outdoor workshop, sheltered from the heat and sun, riding the wave of a gentle breeze and the rustling of the leaves through the popular trees, being connected to nature and suspended in time.
