American ceramic artist and painter Toshiko Takaezu: "You are not an artist simply because you paint or sculpt or make pots that cannot be used. An artist is a poet in his or her own medium. And when an artist produces a good piece, that work has mystery, an unsaid quality; it is alive."
Vincent Van Gogh - the yellow café. I have actually been here and eaten at this café. It exists in a small courtyard in l'Arles, France. It is amazing to step foot in a place that was painted by one of the world's most famous and historic painters.
