HUGSgallery is run by myself Dr Lu La Buzz: I am an artist with a doctorate about clay.
During the first UK lockdown I came up with a caring gift of clay for those kept apart to share.
HUGS is a mining term. It is where two separate seams of ball clay, washed from Dartmoor´s granite tors´ have merged into an embrace over millions of years. It´s not found anywhere else.
I prepare and wrap packs of HUGS Clay in eco-friendly sugarcane packaging. HUGS Clay is ideal for children and adults. It can be painted, left in its natural state, or fired in a kiln.
Photos of the finished creations can be shared online in the HUGSgallery so those who gave the clay as a gift can join in too.
