It was during a vacation in Wales that Anja Meeusen saw the light. She was visiting friends in Carmarthen who were taking evening classes in ceramics. She tagged along and was invited by the tutor to “have a go” at the wheel. The result was a complete disaster, but something clicked within Meeusen. “At that moment, as I desperately tried to prevent the clay from shooting off the potter’s wheel, I knew this was what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.” It was not just the creativity involved, but the total package.
In Carmarthen, the pottery teacher was busy at the wheel while her husband ran a tea shop using cups and plates made in the workshop. Meeusen realised that pottery would also encompass her passion for fine food.
