Read this brilliant and inspiriting book about finding fulfilment and serenity on a journey from Prozac to pottery, by the talented Florence St. George whose every creation I covet.
I am in awe of Florence's story - depression, brain science, pottery, techniques, glazes, artists - she has thrown them on the writer's wheel, and produced this seamless work of art. A truly lovely book.
Solace and soul-connection via the joy of making. We can all take inspiration from Florence St. George and discover the mood-changing comfort of creativity via ceramics - her way. Or your way. Just do it.
So good to read an honest and redemptive story about the power of fun and creativity - I've always said if it was mandatory to wear a smock once a week and get messy with clay, adults would be happier.
I have found nothing outside myself that can truly fill the void, but this book demonstrates that pottery is about as close as it gets.
An inspiring story of the therapeutic benefits of immersing oneself in pottery.
