Text reads:
Rather than a state of nostalgia, Black Mountain is in present time, part of the rich past that nourishes present tense. Running the pottery shop in the early '50s led to my first involvements from potter to sculptor. What a gift it was, that beautiful well-equipped shop that Turner had built, set in a large meadow with mountain views seen from our large shop windows. In the stimulating environment of the College, we faculty, as artists, were growing and learning, as the students looked over our shoulders and learned also. This photo is a collaborative project, where my mate, a photographer, fuses fragments of my work with the human form, the model often being me.
