Pot-making has a language that is beyond the grammar of written words. It is like a conversation that happens between clay and fingers, the former almost commanding the latter how to move in a certain rhythm and create the form. Clay is, at the same time challenging yet simple, primordial yet playful, formless but creates the form and most importantly, it is full of surprises. In it one can feel seeds of growth that can be nurtured with the hands. Pots are like babies - a projection of the potter who makes them.
As Soetsu Yanagi rightly puts it - “There is something so basic, so natural in the hand that the urge to utilize its power will always make itself felt. Moreover, the chief characteristic of handcrafts is that they maintain by their very nature a direct link with the human heart, so that the work always partakes of a human quality.”
