I have a real enjoyment working with clay, it feels like a very healthy thing to do. It is very basic. There are plenty of technical difficulties to upset things but they too seem to become part of the play. The real pleasure for me though is having hands on fresh clay, pressing it and shaping it. Sometimes I try and and make something I have in mind and sometimes its like a doodle and I don’t know what I’m making until I’ve made it. Either way, there is usually a spontaneity about the process, like a child at play. Every once in a while I make something I actually like!
