“This pitcher, I realized, was a survivor. I thought of the turning wheel and the turning world, the magic, alchemical transformations of the kiln. And I thought of Ben Owen making handles, thousands and thousands of handles, each handle firmly and gracefully connecting the world of art to the world of use.” Christopher Benfey
American Craft Council is reading Christopher Benfrey’s “Red Brick, Black Mountain, White Clay” in 2013. Think I might like to also.
