After a career spanning 35 years as a criminal defence lawyer working in the UK justice system, Muswell Hill based Jeremy Ornstin felt he'd served his sentence and called time.
Jeremy was lucky enough to find a new discipline - ceramics - and has found it utterly absorbing. Learning a new skill, a creative process without being answerable to anyone for the first time in half a century, Jeremy sees as a great privilege.
Controlling a lump of clay on a wheel teaches you some of the laws of physics too. And then there is the glazing process, with the final layers of colour and sheen giving live to the form.
Jeremy says he is still mystified by what happens in the privacy of the kiln chamber. Is it magic or chemistry?!
