There is a great joy in creating, to sit down at the studio table and let the thoughts and ideas flow out through the hands. Often my creation process is such that I feel that I’m just watching while my hands work, and that it’s very exciting to see what they will create.
This creative joy is also very helpful when, for various reasons, you have something important you have to think about. Creating as you are thinking helps to sort the mind and thoughts out and also helps you to get a little perspective. Perhaps it is not that big problem as you thought from the beginning?
It happens that I have one-to-one workshops with a person who do not feel so easy in life at the moment. We sit together at the table, we create things in polymer clay together, we cry together, we sometimes talk and sometimes we rest in silence. Afterwards, they often say that they feel much better off by just sitting down and creating in peace and quiet.
And it’s also a joy to have the privilege to be a part of this healing process.
