"The fundamental contradictions of the ceramic vessel and the human body are the same: they are objects of both strength and fragility, though, in the end, the ceramic object will always outlive us. This urgent attempt at immortality remains an essential appeal of ceramics to me. Why do I make what I make? I wish to tell stories that might outlive me." -Lauren Gallaspy, Helena, Montana
