Yes, I am going to tie these all together in a feat of true daring!

In my home town of Welland we used to have a Rose Festival complete
with a beauty pageant.

I remember each contestant being asked what their career plans were :

' I'll either be a fashion model or a plastic surgeon '
' I'd like to be a movie star or a scientist '

Why does this come to mind when someone states they could either
be a studio potter making one of a kind originals or be the head of
a production pottery?

The two jobs are entirely different.
They each call for specific talents and great commitment.
I am not saying that no one can manage to accomplish them
both .... but these people are few and far between.

FOCUS !! Read the Comment section of the January 2004 Ceramics
Monthly and learn to Frame the Problem, narrow the focus.
