The Things We Make

“The most powerful art often comes from dropping predetermined ideas of what something will look like. When people stop seeing themselves in the role of conceiver and switch to the notion that they are the conduit through which the work will pass, the pressure of responsibility is released. Once this happens, it’s amazing how the things we make can surprise and inform us.”

— Nick Bantock in The Trickster’s Hat: A Mischievous Apprenticeship in Creativity (2014)
