Perfect simplicity

I'm planning to come back in my next life as someone who makes ceramics. 

Pots, bowls, plates, platters. They're simple, utilitarian objects and particularly beautiful when made by hand. There is nothing pretentious about a bowl. It holds. It is held. 

When I see a beautiful piece of ceramic art in an art gallery or museum my heart wants it to escape and be used.
