For anyone who has thrown a pot or a shuttle or loved the materials with which they explore their craft, this book follows stories that feel familiar. I found myself wanting to figure out Anni Albers' weave structure or sink my hands in some white North Carolina clay. The author's family heritage is impressive and includes folk of wide ranging talents. My only gripe was with the very last section on Whistler, which seemed an afterthought. Still, an engaging read.
