Val M. Cushing at the Providence Art Club, NCECA 2015

What a gem of a show.  Over the years I have heard many stories about Val Cushing and I am sorry never to have met him.  By all accounts he was one of the best teachers and a great potter.  This is a quote by Val Cushing, simple and true.

“It is in nature that I find the rich colors, the dynamic textures and the harmonious forms I love to make”    

Val M. Cushing

 

My final quote is one that I aspire to and I imagine most potters do too.

 “I aspire to make beautiful pottery – some to be used and some to function visually as sculpture”  Val M. Cushing
