Talk of the Town: Test knack for creativity at pottery studio

Jenny Schnabel

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.
