pots provides a few very important things for me: discipline,
including regular physical and mental exercise; a measure of
creativity and productivity; and a role in history as artisan.
The choice to pursue potting as a profession came a bit of a
surprise to me at first, but now seems the ideal solution to
the puzzle of life. It satisfies the athlete, the academic,
and the connoisseur in me alike. I can be my own boss, make
my own inventory, and connect with those who buy and use my
work. Along with the rewards, there are many lessons to be learned
in patience, cooperation, and loss.
