Summer is almost over but good times @ Clay Ave isn’t over yet! More and more students are coming to the pottery studio. To learn a hobby, to get their hands dirty with clay, and to simply have a good time.
Moms have been very patient, not only with clay, but with their children who are learning the craft with them. I’m hoping to see Dads in the pottery studio too : )
Pottery Making is not only for those with big hands. Clay can be formed in various ways between two hands, big or small.
Kids, Teens, and Adults are still welcome to take classes after summer. It is definitely something new to enjoy all throughout the year!
One of the fun things @ Clay Ave is going on pottery field trips. A Pottery Field Trip is going to a Potter’s home, seeing his/her works, chatting with them, learning the inspirations behind their creations, remembering a good memory about the trip, and seeing Ceramics in a different way.
You will be surprised with how great these Potters cook and present their meals too!
Our first trip is going to be at Ugu Bigyan’s pottery & food haven in Tiaong, Quezon. It is where I felt the spinning clay between my hands for the very first time.
It is a destination that is not exclusive for pottery enthusiasts alone. Ugu’s home is a wonderland for rustic discoveries, delicious food, and creative day with clay, all in one spot.
There will be different pottery & culinary trips that will be made all throughout the year. Next stop: Home of Jon & Tessy Pettyjohn, The Mom & Pop in Philippine Pottery in Pansol, Laguna!
Let’s all come down to the potter’s house and see what we can find there : )
Food and Ceramics go hand in hand. Not only for the eyes to see or for the tonque to taste. The value of ceramics is not only determined by the food that are placed on these handmade pots. But how these pots came to life by the inspirations and passion behind the works that make them what they are today.
I will be posting the schedule of the following trips here, so stay tuned!
