David MacDonald in his studio working on a large plate
We had just finished an assignment, and my professor at the time, Joseph Gilliard, was unloading the kiln. I thought I’d walk through and take a look at how the firing went. A cup that I had made was on the table. He said, ‘You can use that cup in your dorm to drink coffee.’ I picked up the mug and cut my next class, made a cup of instant coffee, and drank it. That was when I decided that I wanted to spend as much time as I could, even my life, making things that were useful. — David MacDonald in 2008 interview
