Kesem Yahav


Kesem Yahav is a ceramics artist who runs classes for small groups in De Baarsjes. Her studio is gorgeous, calm and well organised. Last Friday, Tracey, Rachel, Sarah, Jen and I took the first of two workshops, an introduction course. Kesem, who is very relaxed, taught us the basic techniques to build an object out of clay and then we were left to our own designs. Next week we glaze them, which I'm really looking forward to. Making something out of clay is harder than it looks, but there's something so satisfying about physically making something. I feel the same way about silver-smithing.
