I loved this book. I liked how he related the forms of pottery to other natural forms like a bell pepper, the human body, and so on. I connected with what he says about clay and using it in a way that retains it's plasticity and vigor, his appreciation for Shoji Hamada's work and the Zen of it all. Making pottery on the kick wheel has been very meditative and healing for me and he also speaks of this.
