Creating pottery, particularly in the calming wilderness of Lapland, involves a deep connection with the material and a sense of touch, sight, and sound. The act of shaping and molding the clay is a form of mindfulness, helping to bring awareness to the present moment and promoting a sense of well-being. Whatever the end result, the clay is a physical manifestation of this meditative state, making pottery a rewarding and fulfilling experience.
