Mi piace ricordarlo con le sue parole riprese da una recente intervista:
“I think it’s about what a potter injects into a piece. A lot of today’s boring, shallow, urban tablewares, usually in porcelain and with pale, uninteresting glazes, lack any sense of adventure.
We potters have little to do these days other than express something in our work. People don’t NEED our pots; metal and plastic are cheaper and readily available. They buy them because they want to see an artistic expression, to feel a connection with the maker. They want to see that a potter has endeavoured to find a new avenue of exploration and succeeded by daring to fail. Safe, banal, boring work is better made in a factory and contributes little to our world of clay.”
