"The dual worlds of realistic studio-potter education and the continuum of functional or domestic pottery for general family use are at a point of extreme crisis OVER MUCH OF THE WORLD. It is not too late to effect a reversal in the status quo, but it will take a massive vote of confidence and a concerted effort by volumes of believers to make it happen. Is it worth the bother? IT CERTAINLY IS!"
