When she wrote A Potter's Notes on Tai Chi Chuan, Margaret Emerson had been making her living as a potter for sixteen years and practicing T'ai Chi for nine years. In this book she compares the process of making art with the practice of moving meditation. Her observations reveal lessons learned from both endeavors and the ways in which they reflect, illuminate, and contribute to each other.

Other books by Margaret Emerson are Breathing Underwater: The Inner Life of T'ai Chi Ch'uan (North Atlantic Books) and the new (October 2005) memoir Eyes of the Mirror (Artichoke Press). The author is an independent woman; an educated, rational Westerner steeped in Eastern philosophy who uses T'ai Chi, meditation, visions, and dreams to sustain and guide her. She interweaves intellect and intuition. The focus of her life and her writing is the knitting together of conscious and subconscious, shaping an exterior that's an authentic reflection of her interior.
