It had been a source of painful frustration to the teenage David that all the available ceramics courses required more academic qualifications than he could hope to achieve. Now, at thirty-three years old, with an albeit precarious financial foothold in his beloved profession now secured, he was determined to school himself in the art and science of ceramics – to give himself the education denied to him by the system.
