I found this the other day by British Ceramic Artist and Writer Edmund de Waal:
Craft is a starting place, a set of possibilities.
It avoids absolutes, certainties, over-robust definitions, solace.
It offers places, interstices, where objects and people meet.
It is unstable, contingent.
It is about experience.
It is about desire.
It can be beautiful.
— Edmund de Waal
