On June 4, 2020, I launch this blog site. We’re in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Protests have broken out across the country in response to the brutal, senseless killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis last week. Unemployment is at a high in my lifetime. There is pain spread across this land.
I dedicate this blog to exploring topics in ceramics, both contemporary and historical. Not because this effort will eliminate or even minimize the pain spread across this land, but because it’s a small effort to celebrate beauty, creativity, inventiveness and craftsmanship – qualities that add to our human experience.
