This weekend I wore my Aunty Mel hat and spent the weekend with my four year old niece. She is the apple of my eye. I had been promising her a day in the studio for weeks, and we finally got around to it. I should have her trained up to do all my dirty work in no time! She was a natural! After a quick burl on the wheel she also proved a dab hand at slip casting and then got all crazy on the sculptures and made beautiful big blobs with knitting needles sticking out of them! Aaah…kiddies are so good at expressing themselves! It really is a marvel to watch.
