“Don’t think about making art; just get it done.  Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art” – Woody Allen

“I grew up watching my father make plates that featured penises as centerpieces. Pink, proud, and stiff, encircled by cerulean Greek key, Dad’s creations made me feel scared and small. I saw a private part of the man I could not measure up to.  At six years old, I lived in a world shaded by his ceramic glazes.  There was love and color, but anger, too, in the way he kneaded his clay, palms pounding the rich, wet earth into shapes of his choosing.” – Royal Young
