I maintain that potters should fill their homes with good pots made by others. Don't fill your house with your own pots. It is like talking to yourself. Surround yourself with good pots made by the best.
Also have a library full to over flowing of books on your subject- Ceramics. My buddy Bruce Dehnert has just published a book on Simon Leach. Bruce is a hellava good writer and he has some pottery family tradition to work with in this book. Add it to your library- I have! t
