Although I brought the Dalai Lama weaving with me on my trip to the East Coast, I didn’t show it around very much.
But when I got to these magical fields…well, you get the picture.
The following is a brief excerpt from the piece by Susan Crowell, writer, and
ceramics instructor at U. Michigan, Ann Arbor:
“For craftspeople, this making special emphasizes both the making and the
special. Reversing the terms – special making- rings even truer when speaking
of craft, for which the process of handwork is an essential component. As our
perception of time becomes more precious and the time-intensive nature of
craft increases its value, craft may even come to represent the preciousness
of time itself, embodied in an object.”
