How are you creative?
Has it been sitting on your shelf?
Do you need to relax and unwind?
Or do you save it for someone else?
I am looking for just the right word.
It’s my main artery.
Walk right in the Carson Mall.
It’s “Ogres-Holm Pottery”
Jo and Merrill co-own the show
With their son Lucas by their side.
If you have a creative bone
Please come, step inside.
You never know until you try it.
They have classes and workshops galore.
On Tuesday evenings from 6 to 8:30
It’s an “open studio door”
They are really involved with the community.
With classes for Girl Scouts and special needs.
They make empty bowls for the hungry,
You can throw one.
I think you will be pleased.
Sometimes you must think out of the box
There are many classes:
Throwing on a wheel.,
Hand building, soft or hard slab,
Or pinch pots.
You will get the feel.
This is something I want to do.
I know it should be fun.
Come and throw some clay with me.
We’ll have a one on one.
