Dear Michael,

I thought about your new ceramics some more, and in my mind I keep hearing these two words: Shining Desert. It’s a song by John Frusciante. In part the lyrics, although fairly ambiguous, allude to the making as for instance in the lines:

Put it on a flat space height will make it thin or wide
Seen from a distance objects hide in plain sight
