The Virtues of Art, Craft and Design
Part 1

2012

This is a discussion between me, an object-maker, and Dr. Burton Wasserman, an art historian/studio artist.  Burt and I explore virtues of art, design, and craft in the pursuit of excellence. 

These two videos are in memory of my dear friend, Burt Wasserman who passed away in February 2017.  I felt fortunate that our friendship spanning over 40 years took us to exhibitions, museums, and lectures in and around the Philadelphia area. 

Burt's intellectual curiosity and his enthusiastic sharing of the creative expression has been a source of constant inspiration for me.  Burt was the art professor that guided my self-directed learning.
