Celebrating The First Township10

Working with clay provided me a kind of meditative motion. The focus it takes to work on the wheel has an undeniable kinship to the focus of poem making. With both you have to get into a zone, you snap out of it and the pot falls, the poem disappears.

Books to shake
you up

We asked (on Instagram):

What books have been central to your development as an artist?
