While perusing Etsy this afternoon on my lunch break, I came across an interview with the potter behind the beautiful works of Clam Lab. One part of her interview really struck me and is so relevant to not only pottery, but also to many other parts of our lives. Be in love with the process.
“Anyone who works in clay knows about letting go. So much can go wrong. Pots break, kilns misfire — it’s foolish to be attached to a fixed outcome. The only survival strategy is to be in love with the process. I make products, but my real work is the practice.”
