Our pottery gives testimony to ourselves. To a potter, education is really self-education: it is the continual revelation of one self by oneself. Each time the potter transforms a mass of clay the clay is transforming the potter; the creating is the searching and finding of meaning; an attempt to unite mankind and his or her being. I often believe that a beautiful pot achieves that goal.
