Being a huge fan of Jonathan Adler and how he’s gone to create an empire from his love of ceramics and design, it has been on my bucket list to take a pottery class. I’ve always wanted to get my hands dirty and learn how to work with clay and ceramics and create objects out of the elements that our ancestors used. If you think about it, something as simple as a mug or a bowl has a lot of design and thought put into it and I’ve always wanted to experience the process and craft of how one gets to the final product. This weekend I was surprised with a very thoughtful getaway to Ojai where we did just that. We entered a vibrant compound that had the most captivating energy and were greeted by two amazing and enlightened instructors who helped us turn balls of clay into something tangible. I can’t believe how much focus and physicality it takes to center and mold shapes but I can honestly say I’m hooked. This was truly such an amazing experience and I can’t wait to go back.
Thank you to everyone at Fire Stick Pottery. We’ll see you again soon.
