Watching ceramics take shape by hand is such a calming experience, and seeing the care and attention that goes into each piece almost makes me wish I had more people to buy gifts for this holiday season!

Anyway, check them out, and also, note that the Tortus studio offers IRL pottery workshops! Please hold while I check on flights to Copenhagen…
