“..works of craft – a spun and woven tweed vibrant with subtle colour; a bubble of blown glass, the very essence of hollowness asking to be filled and held in the cupped hand; the whorl of a silver ear-ring bent to that springing curve by fractional pressure of tool in hand, playing a descant upon the shell-form of the human ear – give an experience of wealth, not obtainable from most of our surroundings and gear.”
Seonaid Mairi Robertson (1961) "Craft and Contemporary Culture"
