Lucille Oka Posted July 9, 2012 Report Share Posted July 9, 2012 Coke can't criticize Pepsi. Ralph Lauren can't criticize Betsy Johnson; Arnon Milchan can't criticize Quentin Tarantino, why? Because they are in the same businesses the critique cannot be trusted. Ergo potters can't criticize potters. Notice how it doesn't sit well with potters. We can't take it, especially from each other. Many of us get jealous and angry at other's potential successes. We are all vying for the same pottery dollar. In other venues such as movies, plays, art, books and restaurants the critics are not writing to the â€˜makersâ€™ of the â€˜worksâ€™ but to the public. Not to say the makerâ€™s will not read the reviews it affects their bottom lines; they most certainly do. But I will never â€˜personallyâ€™ or â€˜not personallyâ€™ accept a critique from competitors.
