About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
(1) Diana Pavlac Glyer is not just a potter who has written a book about the art and the steps involved. She is a teacher, a veteran university-level educator. Her experience at the potter's wheel, plus her intellect and skill with words, might be enough to recommend this book. You'll quickly find those things to be just the topsoil of a very valuable crop that you're about to harvest.
(2) This isn't merely a how-to book about pottery. If that's all it were, it would be terrific enough. You don't have an interest in making pottery? No problem. This is a book about process - of pottery, sure; and even more of life itself. And it's about the results - in you, by you. This book (CIPH for short) is a loving embrace that takes you on a journey of finding a fullness of life by engaging in the woven intricacies of your mind and heart. It is a tender introspection and dedication to exploring the deepest and highest meanings. It's all lovingly crafted and presented with rich insights shaped by gratitude and hope, which are built on the author's very wonderfully, beautifully shared joy of her dedication to life's discoveries. Her joy becomes yours, by osmosis if you will. Ultimately, CIPH is a guidebook that is very nearly a holistic experience in itself. The only limitations here are on the part of the reader because reading it is participation. Diana Glyer doesn't challenge you to examine your heart, your mind, and your approach to life; she welcomes you to it and invites you to make a profound adventure of it.
(3) CIPH may be the easiest read you'll ever have. It's as if the author is simply sitting with you, talking with you. That is, in fact, the case.Read more ›
I have left good, honest tears on every page and shall return to this book again and again. I urge others to buy this, to share it in private and in small groups, and to come to know the healing that is in the Potter's hands.
