Nine-year-old Taylor Randall said he's always been interested in pottery.

The Manchester Township youth was one of seven students participating in Clay Camp 2, a weeklong study in clay, at Creative York, 10 N. Beaver St. in downtown York City.

“I love clay, and I want kids to love clay, too,” said Allison Seitz, who leads the clay camp at Creative York, which is offering a variety of camps over the summer months, including dance, puppet-making, theater, writing and the art of sculpture.

“You can just make it your own,” Taylor said. “You get to mold it, and it feels good. I like it on the wheel because you can shape it better on the wheel.

“My favorite thing is to see the finished products. I love opening up the kiln and seeing how everything turned out,” Seitz added. “I just love it. That's what makes me happy.”
