New potter for this years Arts in the Ville

We are excited to have a new potter exhibiting as part of this years Arts in the Ville.
Louise Wild will be showing her pots in the Whimsical garden all weekend.
Here is what Louise says about her creative passion

"I'm a hobby potty with a real passion for texture and colour, inspired by mother nature and some of her many talents! I have dabbled with clay for many years and get a real sense of relaxation and fulfillment from going through the process of making a piece, from initial idea to final completion.
I still feel a genuine thrill each time I finish a ceramic piece."

I can't wait to see her at work during the weekend.
