“I must have been a pharmacist in my previous life. The mixtures in jars, the formulas for a beautiful glaze. I love it. But also the clay, which I mix with sawdust or with paper. The mixers work overtime. It makes a huge mess. But there, in my studio, behind that potter’s wheel, I feel happy there.”
