Focus: Summer Workshops

We need passionate newbies; we do, in fact, want them to be fired up about clay. But once they are interested, and we have them in our clutches, and they have learned a subtle thing or two about the wonders of clay, then I think it is reasonable to expect that their vocabulary and manner of dialog reflect their level of knowledge—which is to say that they move from being fired up to becoming stoked, or centered (well, maybe not centered—that takes quite a while). —Sherman Hall, Editor
