A friend and neighbor is a great appreciator of studio pottery. His modest kitchen contains a small walk-in pantry which is absent of any food. Instead, the shelves are stacked high with plates and bowls and lined with deep rows of pitchers, vases and mugs. Without fail, whenever we visit, we discuss pottery, ending marveling and handling these pots. It must be an odd sight to see the two of us in his pantry enthusiastically carrying on. Yet, we never tire of this ritual. The exchange serves as educator and motivator. I am excited to be a member of the clay community but am aware of the responsibility of craftsmanship and innovation in a timeless art. Upon leaving his house, filled with ideas, I am eager to head back to the studio. Having just looked at pots I admire, I am left with the satisfying challenge — how will I contribute?
