"We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want."
-Tao Saying

"Earth, water, air, and fire: so simple, but so complex."

... and the pottery and the potter are touched by them all.
What else in life encompasses so completely all four earth elements?

“Holy Grail” of American Ceramics Found During Archaeological Excavation of New Museum Site in Philadelphia
“The discovery of this remarkable little bowl reminds us that the 'buy local' movement has very deep roots in American history,” said Dr. R. Scott Stephenson, Vice President of Collections, Exhibitions, and Programming at the Museum of the American Revolution. “It is also an important reminder that when colonists boycotted imported British goods as a way to protest Parliamentary taxation, they did not have to settle for crude versions of beloved luxuries from abroad. Colonial tradespeople produced elegant textiles and ceramics for a market eager use the ‘power of the purse’ to make a political point.”
