  • Julia Timm (Fresh Mud Pottery) began her work in ceramics at age 50, when her youngest of four children went off to college.

  • In the believing game we return to Tertullian’s original formulation: credo ut intelligam: I believe in order to understand. We are trying to find not errors but truths, and for this it helps to believe.
