Everyday during two months of the residency in Quebec I was picking up and treating (manually filtring, drying, wedging) mud from the St. Lauren river to the point that it was clay-like, so I could practice throwing pots with it. That was my daily physically hard, but soothing workflow I established by myself. At the end of residency I put all the unfired results to the river and the tight took it back.
