A Zimbabwean Asylum seeker aged 38, lost a leg in a freak accident just over two years ago, becoming an amputee. Losing her only income as a domestic worker, instead of sitting in depression, Christine accepted an invite from Now and Zen Artisan Pottery Studio for Clay Therapy. Christine committed herself 100% arriving at the studio daily for 6 hour sessions learning a new craft, and is now an accomplished Ceramic Artist and member of Ceramics SA Association. Christine makes unique Friendship/Gratitude Angels, fired in the age old tradition of smoke firing including sculpture, and creative home décor.
