Touch forms started during my student days to help fellow student quit smoking.Their major complaint was- they needed something to do with their hands- In the beginning the forms were abstract shapes but from 1998 hearts has become my best selling fine-craft item.
The students were given a piece of clay to form the most comfortable shape to suit their hands, the form was then recreated in a glazed clay form or in wood.
The touch forms have evolved over the years and are now created in wood only, mainly because of its warm feel as a touch form.

Allow me to share a comment sent by Linda from Massachusetts on March 17. 2017- a story that touched me deeply; more so because my mother once said to me, when I was about 5 years old-“I can’t explain it, but your hands are blessed”
