Every now and then, I make a batch of wee things – hearts, tiny ones like these to go into tiny glass jars, hearts with words on, small pieces of clay with just one word on to go in a jar of beach treasures. I find it very therapeutic. I have a pottery friend, Pauline, who cries out in alarm when she sees them, how one earth do you have the patience? But, in reality, it is calming, not stressful. It allows me to focus and not to have to think too big, to just create with my hands and to let muscle memory do its thing. It pulls me back in from the bigger picture of design and lists and kiln schedules..
What is your go-to calming exercise?
