craft is a starting place

i stumbled upon this fantastic quote from british ceramic artist, edmund de waal today, via evilin kasikov.

"craft is a starting place, a set of possibilities.
it avoids absolutes, certainties, over-robust definitions, solace.
if offers places, interstices, where object and people meet.
it is unstable, contingent.
it is about experience.
it is about desire.
it can be beautiful."
