“Occasionally I describe myself as a hand-builder at heart, trapped in a wheel-thrower’s body. Everything I make comes from the wheel, and I love the liveliness that throwing puts into the clay. But where I’m having the most fun is at the table putting wheel thrown parts together: cutting, coaxing and stretching the clay.”
– Nicholas Joerling
