I picked up wheel throwing in the third year of my design degree - by taking spring courses to sneak my way into the fine arts world. Thankfully my grandfather had the same hobby 40 years ago and had a wheel in his basement that allowed me to practice and get insider knowledge so I could stand out for my skill instead of being an anomaly of a design student. I found that by working with clay, it gave me a break from the computer screen, but also a new understanding to user experience since it was a material that relied on the combination of utility and emotion.
