Meet Toshiko Takaezu: a potter who (like all potters) was not afraid to play with fire. In our oral history interview with her, she reflects on why she became a potter:

…the impact that I got from women potters, the strength that you could feel, the strength that is in the pot, made me feel that I really like this…and to have such an impression that I got from the pottery that the women made and the force that they had with the piece, and they didn’t make to have it in the galleries and the museum, they make because they can use it.

I saw her do this at Goshen College. Amazing.

Upward Dog — I really enjoy exhaling out of this as I roll my body back into Downward Dog. It’s my favorite part of the vinyasa flow.
