In response to the usual Art Fair Query, I once told someone that if I were
just making pots for the $$, I would get a job because it's a hard way to
accumulate mass quantities of cash. I told them to come and visit me
sometime and check out my house and car etc. I like where I live, but I
don't think I would impress any upwardly mobile folks with my worldly
possessions. I make pots because I love it and, for me, it has been a
wonderful road to self discovery that I wouldn't trade for a higher paying
