Play with clay 

Got a little spare time ( rare these days) and got to do a little self directed workshop on ceramics! I used to attend a workshop every week when I was a lot younger and loved it and unfortunately since have never had the opportunity to do it again. So I was excited to get stuck in. I decided I wanted to make something useful (penpot)  but for it to be fun and quirky. Thinking about what could hold pens I had the idea to make it into a dog! Unfortunately I don’t have access to a kiln so I have had to let it dry out for a couple weeks and then paint with acrylic. I’m stupidly proud of this. There is something so satisfying about making your own useful, fun, object.
