Interviews with 50 selected artists about making.  Introduction: 'The most important question in the interviews was whether any failures during the working process has led to revelations. Such moments are often turning points, moments in which boundaries are broken, discoveries are made and a crucial step is taken in one’s work. It is the point at which frustrations are let go and the mistake becomes an ‘aha-moment’, leading to a new beginning. What follows is the realisation that one must work with the properties of the material and adjust one’s expectations for the outcome. These are the most important cognitive steps in every learning process. The optimum conditions for learning and ground-breaking renewal is an environment in which an idea is allowed to grow, without external judgement. The EKWC is such a place: unique, safe and challenging. Here, ceramics keeps redefining itself, again and again.' ISBN 978-90-825550-0-4.
