where the pot becomes the potter and the potter becomes the pot
Susi's pottery studio is nestled in the gardens at Point Leo Retreat where she creates pots that are to be used. Susi believes that when you use a pottery bowl, mug, plate and other creations, you are creating a connection to the earth. Creating with clay is a meditative experience where you become one with the clay, you come into one-pointed focus which then leads to mindfulness.
Private classes in Soulful Pottery with Susi are focused on meditation and looking at clay as a tool to connect to your breath and inner self.
