This fourth collection from Louis Mulcahy reflects on fifty years working in clay. It ranges from the classic pots of the Chinese Sung Dynasty through those of the Japanese. Tea Ceremony and traditional Danish Pottemager workshops to the excitement and vicissitudes of learning the Potter’s craft. It tells of the creation and evolution of an Irish studio-workshop of high renown. It looks at human foibles and checks Biblical and Quaranic references to the potter. Essentially it is a song of gratitude for a life of sensory wealth.
