A pottery class

"pottery""pottery""pottery"These photos were made during a pottery class I took together with my colleagues at Atelier Nikisan in Brussels. Veronique Bogaert who owns the Atelier has a very interesting life story, the kind that inspires you to take risks and the road less traveled. She left Belgium and a job in a bank, traveled and lived in Egypt, New Caledonia, New Zeeland, Australia, China and finally Japan, where she studied the art of pottery, learned Japanese and lived there for about 20 years.  (you can read more about it on her site).

As for pottery, it is such a relaxing activity! It’s wonderful play with the clay, let your hands and mind free to create. The results can be surprising. Although for all of us it was the first time we’ve ever tried it, some people really found a hidden talent and produced some (small) masterpieces.
