Craft [Oct. 11th, 2011|12:24 pm]
Tony Grist
I'm not very good at housework. Housework is a craft. I can push a duster along a flat surface or a vac across a carpet, but the results don't sing- not as they would if a proper crafts(wo)man were wielding the tools.

Talking about craft, I was watching a documentary about British pottery last night. I already knew I loved 17th century slipware, but now I love John Dwight's 17th century stoneware too.  

I'd love to be a potter, but only if I could skip the apprenticeship. I'm too impatient to be a good craftsman. I want the finished masterpiece in my hands, now.

I find it hard to believe that air-dry clay is really as good as the stuff you have to fire in a kiln.

The memorial to Lydia Dwight is beautiful. Did you seek out its companion piece "Lydia Dwight resurrected"?
