Barbara and Don, thanks. I count this among the most inspiring advice
I've ever found on clayart or anywhere else. I mean it.
bless you one and all!
... who loves the koan where the roshi holds up a simple teabowl and
asks his guest:
"What is the most important part of this pot?"
Where there is joy there is creation.
Where there is no joy there is no creation:
Know the nature of joy.

There I was, crying on the lovely maple floor in front of this quote,
with dozens of potters walking past to see the pots. It was my epiphany
for sure. Happened twice. The quote from Hamada Shoji was just as
wonderful, but too long to remember exactly. Tears there also.
