Corner Stone Pottery Farm

"O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter;
we are all the work of your hand" (Isaiah 64:8).

I am really amazed at how potters mold an ordinary looking clay and turn it into something beautiful. So when I knew that learning pottery was included in my kids' field trip agenda, I got excited. The kids went to Corner Stone Pottery Farm in Balubad 1st, Silang, Cavite. It is owned by husband and wife EJ and Eva Espiritu, a ceramic engineer and an artist, respectively.

I immediately fell in love with the lush surroundings which made me feel relaxed. But because it was just a field trip, we only stayed there for a short while. Hmmm...maybe I can visit it again someday. Check out what the kids learned there:

EJ Espiritu, one of the owners, demonstrated molding using a kick wheel.
Look at how excited Gabby was while watching the process.

If the kids were amazed and impressed at how this potter
turned the clay into this bowl mold, I was too!

The pottery farm also do ceramics. A staff explains
how the ceramic mugs and decors are molded and dried.

Eva Espiritu explains to the kids how the ceramics and clay are baked in the oven.

hanging decor! It's so beautiful!
