“Everything vanishes, falls apart, doesn’t it? Nature is always the same, but nothing in her that appears to us lasts. Our art must render the thrill of her permanence, along with her elements, the appearance of all her changes. It must give us a taste of her eternity.”
—Paul Cézanne as quoted by ceramist and teacher Rupert Spira
