    Craig Carlson a much loved professor at The Evergreen State College loaned me this book and he was lucky to get it back. Several years after he died in a tragic accident I was in a bookstore looking for something to help me through the grief of having lost a loved one of my own and found the copy he loaned me. I am certain it was the same copy. Either way the book is full of analogies between ceramics and living life.

    I didn’t get along with the writing style. There is definitely merit in what Richards attempted to express, her voice just doesn’t jive with my own aesthetic sensibilities.

    An interesting philosophical take on two of my favourite things - poetry and pottery. Too bad I didn't have time to give this dense book the attention and thought it deserves - my 3 star rating is probably more of a reflection of my reading it in small bits and pieces rather than finding larger chunks of time to spend with these ideas.

    I’ve had this book on my shelf forever, and finally got around to reading it. I’m glad I waited, actually, as I don’t think I would have understood much of it 30 years ago when I bought it. Very reminiscent of Buddhist thought. The only thing that bugged me was her use of the pronoun “he” for a generic person—I know it was written more than 60 years ago, and normally I’ll just let it slide in older books, but it really bothered me. Maybe because the author was female? I don’t know. But glad I go I’ve had this book on my shelf forever, and finally got around to reading it.

    one of my favorites- amazingly enriching in offering perspective on centering in the person. Exploring consciousness, creativity, pedagogy, and experience as art. Each sentence had insights that resonated with me in the truth.

    This is one of those books I have had in my possession for decades, since the early 1970s when I first read it -- and have returned to it many times, probably not often enough.

    Lots of hippie-speak. I had to skim.

    The 1963 edition of this book was what I clung to during a difficult period of my life.

    She had me with the explanation of the Latin word "potentia" in the introduction. She had me with the explanation of the Latin word "potentia" in the introduction.
