Meet the talented Potter, Dinah.
Dinah, Centered Peace Ceramics, uses pottery to help with her compound PTSD. That’s why the back of her business cards say “finding peace one piece at a time”. Says Dinah, “Pottery is something I can only do when I am in a good place. Every piece is made with a purposeful sense of peace and joy.”
Explains Dinah, “I also like to use crystals and gold because they have positive energy. Nature is beautiful all on its own and I’ve been fortunate enough to learn an ancient craft of working with clay and making art that can be functional or just decorative that could last for thousands of years. The world is a place filled with pain and angry people. I try to bring a little more love and peace into through my pottery.”
Dinah first discovered the world of pottery 21 years ago. She studied for about 4-5 months, and, then wasn’t able to do it again for 17 years. After some big life changes Dinah returned to the potters wheel practicing for many hours every day. Fast forward about 3 and 1/2 years and she has learned so much.
There’s always more to learn but, says Dinah, “I put a lot of love into my art. Each piece is unique because I refuse to be a machine and I allow the clay to become what it wants to be many times.”
We are thrilled to have her back at the market July 11. Come see Dinah’s amazing artistry.
