Capturing words and ordering them into a line to create a compelling and heart felt sentence is not the easiest task. I consider myself a decent writer, but sometimes I struggle to render a thought on paper that is as beautiful as the images and feelings in my head. Which is why, I am grateful for those on this earth who truly do possess a talent for words. I found this quote not too long ago and while I do not know the author I think the words ring true for every potter. I know they do for me.
“ When you first rolled out a slab or centered a pot, you were hooked on clay. Every time you go into the studio you enter a special place where you lose yourself for an hour or two in something totally different and relaxing. And it continues as you make more pieces and explore all the possibilities clay has to offer. You're involved in an exciting craft that has been going on for at least 20,000 years.”
