During the beginning of the pandemic and lockdown I’ve started going in my backyard more often and made the discovery of clay in the bottom of a hole! I mixed it with water and made miniature bear, cat, and bowl sculptures out of it. The moss growing beautifully on our worn down fence was the perfect “gallery” space to display them on. Looking at them bought me joy and relaxation in the midst of the pandemic. In the end I would’ve never discovered the clay if I wasn’t in lockdown. In a way it taught me to slow down and appreciate the little things.
