When it became clear that our shared studio space was going to close down, I took all the ceramics I had made that was suitable for outdoors and headed home.
During lockdown I reached out to others using ceramic graffiti. The positive response from strangers I would meet in the neighbourhood over the past 6 months has been so heartwarming, and some neighbours commissioned some work for me for walls and fences. A door opened when another closed.

The slowing down of social interaction I hope will leave a lasting sensitivity in the world, and a greater understanding of diverse situations.
