What gives life to art?

It is not the clay from which the pottery is made, but the hand that molded it. It is not the metal from which the sculpture is formed, but the hand that forged it. The same is true with textile work, and of all forms of art. The life within each piece is realized throughout the process of its making. The hand and the soul of the artist is revealed.
