Example text

In a suggestive section of The Craftsman called “Metamorphosis: The Potter’s Tale,” Sennett observes: “Clay, that most philosophical of materials, shows three quite different ways in which its craftsmen could guide the metamorphosis of their craft” (125). The three ways, all provoking what Sennett calls “material consciousness,” are (1) the internal evolution of a generic form, (2) changes due to various kinds of mixture and synthesis, and (3) what Sennett calls “domain shift,” the leap from one practice to a quite different activity (127).

Like Karnes’s notoriously silent demonstrations, it expresses a great deal without words. Bracing a huge plaster mold against her breast, arm muscles taut, she pushes clay up its walls with controlled force. Her body expresses authority, focus, and composure. Seemingly unaware of the camera, she is self-contained, complete unto herself. It’s important to recognize how unusual this image was in its time. Postwar antifeminism in the United States was intense and — publicly, at any rate — largely unchallenged.

T. S. Eliot, The Confidential Clerk (New York: Harcourt, 1954), 46–47. 16.
