Very nice, Zyg. Thanks for sharing it. I interviewed "the Mama of Dada" in, I think, 1993, when she was 100. Still very lively and opinionated and still thinking that kissing was one of the highest uses of a human being. What a character.

Hollis, hearing that she considered that kissing was one of the highest uses of a human being just enamors me all the more.

Thanks! I watched this yesterday, then headed over to the New Crocker Art Museum. They have a Beatrice Wood piece that's VERY SIMILAR!
So fun to watch her create it. Interesting to hear her talk about how she concocted her lustre glazes.
