Operation La Bamba
In our family, when someone gets married we not only decorate their car, but my brother Clark hooks up a horn on the outside of the car so it will beep every couple minutes when the newlyweds are in traffic. This particular horn played La Bamba. If he ever gets married, we'll probably have to hire someone to hook up his horn.
Another tradition in our family is stealing the bride during the reception. My brothers took me to play miniature golf in my wedding dress. My niece Amy went to Wal-Mart. They were going to take Salena to Chuck-E-Cheese, but it was closed already.
Visit Yosemite or, oh heck, visit every national park in the U.S.
A really good pot is in the details. --Doug Casebeer at the Ceramics Workshop in Jamaica '10
There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
