‘Warm, honest and full of inspiring tips, Florence’s story shows us that pottery has the power to soothe the heart and heal the mind.’ JULIA SAMUEL

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.’ MIRANDA HART

Sometimes, the smallest things lead to the biggest changes. When struggling with depression and feeling lost after the birth of her daughter, Florence St. George began experimenting with a lump of clay on her kitchen table.

Pot by pot, bowl by bowl, she traded Prozac for pottery, finding solace and strength in the therapeutic touch of clay. Pottery soon became a lifeline; a way to rebuild her life and revive her creativity. In just a few years, Florence went from complete beginner to contestant on The Great Pottery Throw Down. Along the way, she found that clay has the power to restore balance and happiness, and light a path through the darkest of times.

The Potter’s Way is an uplifting and courageous memoir that invites us all to experience the transformative power of clay and creativity.

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.
