I just finished reading this book. I thought others might enjoy it.

 

It is an articulate synthesis of the theory of aesthetics.Though the author uses architecture for concrete examples, it is equally applicable to any form of art, including ceramics. It greatly clarified my thinking about design

I like getting recommended books for a good read. Thanks, Doc.

BTW, I prefer your new avatar. Being God kind of put me off...although I get the Creation part of it.
