The Unknown Craftsman

Sometimes one just has to lower the bar, bust loose, and follow one's whims. Two of the many reasons why: 1. For a healthy, playful release of the tension that comes with always striving to reach perfection and 2. To manifest the true heart of artistic expression in as natural a way as possible. Two books on my shelf say it all, "The Unknown Craftsman" by Soetsu Yanagi and "Shoji Hamada, A Potters Way and Work" by Susan Peterson. Read them.
