According to artist and creator, Silvana Benacchio: ‘Pottery is slow art, an immersion of the senses and self. It is reminiscent of age old artisans working their craft, honing their skills over a long period of time. Labouring with both love and frustration at the unformed yet evolving vision; seeing it through its stages from inception to birth; never really quite sure of the outcome; being lead by the medium and muse. It sounds quite romantic however that is the adventure of creating. Taking risks while being compelled by the impetus of the heart.
