Today I headed down the mountain with my two little assistants to Maho Bay Clayworks at Pickles in Coral Bay where Jill Hale was working on some mugs with hands I recently henna'd. Jill is one of the fabulous people I befriended at this studio, which has served as an inspiring space for creating pottery and a community center on St. John for many years. It has since moved from its original location at Maho Bay camps, to its new home at Pickles. I love throwing pots with henna on my hands. They are both ancient natural art forms whose earth toned colors compliment each other so well.
