Sad to hear that the world of ceramics is not exempt from it predators . Have a look at @softearth.ceramics on instagram to read about her tragic experience being a potter's apprentice in Copenhagen
The world has its share of bad, or even terrible people and events. It can be overwhelming, and discouraging, when we are hearing stories about nothing but.
However, I believe that there is just as much good, if not more so. The reason, we don't hear about these kinds of (good) people or events as much, is because they are the norm. It is expected that people will do the right thing. It is expected that things will work out for the best. These things are not news, because they are the everyday.
Stories about terrible people and events become news, because they are so different and shocking. But we need not dwell on them any longer than necessary. Otherwise we can lose hope, and start to see those terrible things as the new norm, and that is a path we don't want to go down, as a society.
That is very true. I think it is important to be aware those people exist though. But yes, there are thankfully a lot of other awesome people in the community!
