Truro potter hosting class similar to popular movie scene
TRURO – It’s something that local potter Danielle Sawada has heard on more than one occasion – re-creating the popular romantic scene out of the movie ‘Ghost.’
“So many people come in an bring up the movie ‘Ghost,’ so I thought now would be the time to do this,” said Sawada, owner and operator of Thrown Together Pottery and Art on King Street.
Sawada, who opened her studio almost eight years ago, is hosting a couple’s event – Lovers in the Mud – on Feb. 14 at 7 p.m. that will see each couple work together to create a piece of pottery or two – a scene reminiscent of the movie ‘Ghost.’
“I could have an extension on my shop if I had just $1 for every time someone mentioned that scene. I thought it would be fun if I just go with that idea.”
Sawada has room for a half dozen couples and pre-registration is required. The class is $50 per couple, and couples will be able to take home their creation, which will be fired and glazed.
“The thing about Ghost is that it really introduced the concept of pottery,” said Sawada. “It’s not normal to have a lead pottery character in the movies. It really is an epic romance with clay.
“It has inspired people to want to make pottery and play with clay.”
The potter hasn’t done anything special for customers for Valentine’s Day before, however, she is quite excited for the event.
“Patrick Swayze is not included, but just close your eyes and imagine,” she said.
