Work is Life, and Life is Work. This is the most important lesson I learnt from my 'Master' in Japan. In other words, the way you live your life, do the little everyday things, reflects in your work. All life needs to be lived with the care and the dedication you give the making of a teapot, or any masterpiece. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
In the year I worked as an assistant to Deborah of the Golden Bridge Pottery, I must have picked up from her a strong penchant towards the Japanese interpretation of clay. I am fascinated by the simple and yet vibrant, the unmistakable beauty that doesn't come from flashy color or form, but from the feeling of balance when the pot is in your hands. The quiet beauty that touches more deeply the inner senses.
