    "I had many confusing thoughts on my riverbed as an emerging ceramic maker.

     

    The coaching sessions with Wendy enabled me to examine my thoughts. Wendy introduced me to a wide range of possibilities and critical discourses in the ceramic fields, some of which I didn't know even existed.

     

    Wendy was very generous with her time and knowledge, and asked many important questions in order for me to critically evaluate where I am vs where I want to be.

     

    Also, I felt Wendy was very open and kind, especially when at times what we discussed was not an easy subject. I would recommend Wendy to anyone who needs some light on their journey of ceramic making."

    Wendy is a good listener. She easily connects questions, experiences and possible ideas. By empathizing she reflects with ease on what is and - even more important - what could be; all this, coupled with an enormous amount of professional knowledge and experience.

     

    I have encountered Wendy as a warm, integer, thoroughly dedicated and passionate person.

     

    Thanks to the insights that Wendy has given me, sustainability has even more become the main focus in my work, both in terms of content and practice.

     

    She has enriched my process of making new work and made me look at my practice with new valuable insights.

     

    Wendy deserves my great gratitude!
