Let me be clear: I’m no Demi Moore, and I’ve never thrown a pot in my life. Still, whenever I craft with clay, a little piece of me can’t help but wish that Patrick Swayze will come through my front door, anxious to give me a few pointers. Alas, my schoolgirl fantasy will never be realized, but I can still work with clay!
