Stories are powerful. They can transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. They can change the way we look at people, so that those who we think are hovering in the background suddenly become the focal point.
Here is one woman's story.
"I didn't always want to be a potter, I just sort of fell into it, tried it and fell in love with it.
We work as a team, I paint most of the designs, while mum does more of the throwing. It takes longer than you think to build up the layers. If it gets too wet the handles fall off...then mum has to redo them."
