My good friend Marta has just sent me two issues of my favourite, the magnificient, sublime magazine Artes de Mexico.
I need to study this to find where I come from and where I'm going to with my poor new ceramic skills. And look what Octavio Paz wrote there for me:
"The artist of old wanted to be like his predecessors, to make himself worthy of them through imitation. The modern artist wants to be different; his homage to tradition is to deny it."
Uuuuh, I'm going to enjoy this.
