Standing at around 15 minutes away from Yingge Station, Shu Pottery is located along the enticing ceramic streets. The defining dark hues of brown laced across the streets of Yingge as you walk. And It definitely felt like a ceramic town.
It took us a while due to the heavy rain and it really does seem like the perfect weather to take up a pottery class. Seeking comfort from a cup of hot piping coffee while you mold the lukewarm clay. I am really lucky to have to know someone who’s working here. (Power of the Universe) And I’m really lucky to be able to reserve a spot during the weekends.
We gathered in a bunch while the teacher showed us various techniques effortlessly as they shaped the clay to their will.
Then it was my turn to use the potter's wheel. The sleek disk stared right back at me like a foreigner soul while I tried to placed the lump of clay, lifeless onto it. I pushed it down, giving it a bit of shake, making it stick. It was absolutely hard trying to make it stick and grow. I tried numerous ways as a lot of them have design limitations due to its structure. For if it’s not strong enough, there would be a risk of it breaking.
Nevertheless, I had fun, and I’m really thankful for my friend who actually made it possible for me to collect my art piece before I head back to Singapore!
