As a counseling psychologist, Nina Kellogg searched for the inner beauty in her clients, helping them to see it as well. In 1993 she touched clay for the first time. It was love at first touch.
"My teacher, whom I dearly love, spent a great deal of time trying to fix me, saying, 'its only twenty cents worth of clay - you show it who is in charge.' From the beginning, however, clay seemed to tell me what it wanted to be. Just as I listen to my clients, so do I listen to the clay. I attempt to put love in every piece that I make and I hope that this joy is experienced by those who see my work."
