For the past few weeks I have been coming home every Saturday afternoon covered in dry clay from my ceramics class. Geez it’s a great feeling, very relaxing and fun … sometimes I even come home exhausted from a few hours of trying to create something.
During the week, I am often busy living my corporate life: dressed in suits, meeting with clients and managing my business territory. I enjoy many aspects of this corporate life, such as being able to plan and execute achieving goals, negotiations both with customers and internal, and also managing and working with people. However, it is nice to also be able to indulge in something where you can get your hands dirty and make something from scratch. What I would consider indulging in the artistic type of creative.
Maybe someday, with much persistence and a lot of learning – my getting dirty with clay sessions will produce an absolutely gorgeous piece that I would be proud to display at home!
