Execution Date
"What originally fascinated me about porcelain was its fragility in the unfired state. A sort of testing of my ability to be caring and nurturing enough to make a piece that would survive my handling. How fragile can I make it and have it survive?" The artist, quoted in American Ceramics, Fall 1992
