Creation out of clay : the ceramic art and writings of Brother Thomas

"In this book of collected essays on recent works in porcelain, Brother Thomas Bezanson explores his mind and the process of creation to which he has dedicated his life. He exposes to the reader his deepest thinking, side by side with illustrations of the precious fruits of his labor: the multitude of porcelain vases, plates, and tea bowls that he produces in his modest studio."--Jacket
