Shelley Maisel Ceramics

"Ceramics is a passion, a part of my everyday. After more than 25 years I still love each part of the process, the touch and smell of the wet clay, the slow drying, the painting, the firing and the constant wonder on opening the kiln, still warm, to discover your complete pieces. 
For me ceramics is a creation of consciousness, an awareness of my hands and my breath, the realization that I am a part of the materials. In creating my vessels and bowls I allow the clay to form itself, I follow and I create."
