"You are not an artist simply because you paint or sculpt or make pots that cannot be used. An artist is a poet in his or her own medium. And when an artist produces a good piece, that work has mystery, an unsaid quality; it is alive."
~ Toshiko Takaezu
Toshiko Takaezu (17 June 1922 – 9 March 2011) was an American ceramic artist and painter who lived her life in oneness with nature, who created her art to improve herself and discover her place in the world. She said that the most important part of her ceramic pieces was the hollow space of air within, because it cannot be seen but is still part of the pot, which relates to the idea that what's inside a person is the most important.
