This week's LA Times Home & Garden feature story is a great profile by David Keeps on ceramist Otto Heino. Heino was a key figure in the California crafts movement during the 1950s through the 1970s. At 94 years old, he's still creating amazing pottery...
"His nature-inspired decorations reflect the English Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century as well as the indoor-outdoor lifestyle of Southern California...But most important, Heino's work ethic and aesthetic are in line with the Bauhaus philosophy of functional design..."
Heino gives a great quote- "'Never hurry, never worry,' he says, describing his attitude toward art and life."
"If you're negative, you'll never make it."
