IHAVE said that many of us have come to believe that, after the earlier exploration with many materials has indicated which will be satisfying, it is more rewarding later to explore fully the possibilities of one. But this does not mean being confined to such a narrow range as might be imagined. I am concerned to show that there is a certain range of work, with the emphasis either on technique or on creativeness, on the impersonal or the expressive approach, which is possible in all the materials we shall consider. It is so even with that which in the past has been most limiting, most confined by a strict technique—wood. Within one school, within one craft, these are some of the possibilities which will attract differing personalities, and provide a considerable range during the school life of any student who becomes so attached to this material that he wants only to go on exploring its varying forms.
