"Weaving is one of the oldest crafts in history. The basic principles were used to create everyday necessities by interlacing materials such as twigs and leaves to form stable objects. Weaving has always held a special place in the hearts of women because it enables them to create beautiful and elegant works of art as well as creative expression, which is required for the divine feminine.
Pottery is the oldest of all human handicrafts. In ancient times, water was transported in handwoven baskets. Clay would be present in the water, particularly in river water. The shape of the basket was formed as the clay dried. People eventually figured out that these clay linings could be used to make strong containers. As a result, the first clay pots were created.
I have combined my love of these two ancient art forms into a beautiful fusion."
