A beginner’s guide to constructing the universe-The mathematical archetypes of nature, art and science, states: “In ancient Greece the advanced students ... who were engaged in deep studies of natural science and self-understanding where called mathematekoi, “those who studied all”. The word mathema signified “learning in general, to be aware, to awaken”.
If there is such a thing as mathematekoi ( a curious one) using clay as a medium...I am one.
I will start in 2012 with making of Gateway 21

I don't usually post about private life, but on this occasion I am making an exception, as it was an exceptional event. On Sunday 25th April my son married his beautiful girlfriend.
Photographer: Hannah Gosling
To commemorate the occasion, I made little vases for each guest.
I threw them on the wheel from 230g of white stoneware clay.
I used every lump, no rejects, no fuss.
I have spent lovely meditative two days throwing & thinking about the young couple.
