An inspirational journey into the therapeutic powers of pottery from The Great Pottery Throwdown contestant, Florence St George.

Sometimes it's the little things that get you through the big stuff. Struggling with depression and feeling lost after the birth of her daughter, Florence St George began experimenting with a small lump of clay on her kitchen table. Pot by pot, bowl by bowl, she discovered that as her hands became busier, her mind grew calmer.

In just a few years, Florence went from complete beginner to contestant on The Great Pottery Throwdown, discovering some important lessons along the way: that pottery is the perfect antidote to internet overload (phones and clay don't mix), that creativity doesn't have to be expensive, and that the hands-on process of working with clay can ground you like nothing else.

It forces you to be in the moment, it teaches you resilience (pots are endlessly breaking) and fully engages your mind, body and soul.

In The Potter's Way, Flea shares simple tips to get you started on the great pottery journey, from hand-building pinch pots through to throwing large scale vessels on the wheel. This book will give you the toolkit to unleash your creativity and put you on the path of self-discovery.

MEDIA REVIEWS

So good to read an honest and redemptive story about the power of fun and creativity - I've always said if it was mandatory to wear a smock once a week and get messy with clay, adults would be happier. - MIRANDA HART

Read this brilliant and inspiriting book about finding fulfilment and serenity on a journey from Prozac to pottery, by the talented Florence St. George whose every creation I covet. - JEMIMA KHAN

I am in awe of Florence's story - depression, brain science, pottery, techniques, glazes, artists - she has thrown them on the writer's wheel, and produced this seamless work of art. A truly lovely book. - MARY THOMPSON

Solace and soul-connection via the joy of making. We can all take inspiration from Florence St. George and discover the mood-changing comfort of creativity via ceramics - her way. Or your way. Just do it. - LAURA BAILEY

I have found nothing outside myself that can truly fill the void, but this book demonstrates that pottery is about as close as it gets. - NICK LOVE

An inspiring story of the therapeutic benefits of immersing oneself in pottery. - Kate Walsh
