Because when's the last time anyone cared? Which is a shame. Potter Dean Schwarz's loving reminiscences of working with Marguerite Wildenhain is more than a history lesson. The legendary potter was in that first class in the Weimar Bauhaus in 1919. And when weaver Pam Hiller talks about repairing oriental carpets, we encounter a wise woman. Weaving as life. And sculptor Gale Wagner (large scale steel pieces), talks about the joy of making and about his new work, flying temples, as he calls them. Amazing stuff. And more. Editor's Introduction
