Two Native American Quotes
"God gave to all people a cup of clay and from that cup they drank their life"
"Clay remembers the hands that formed it."
"Throughout history, pottery has been a signature of man. It is an interpretation of material, form, and process. It is a lens that provides an aperture into the soul of the man and the times in which he lives. Each vessel shares a moment in the life of an artist and reflects the magical act of creation. What we do with clay identifies who we are."
