Gifts from the Fire
Joan Chittister; Pamela Fletcher
The body of books on Brother Thomas expands mightily with this second publication, Gifts from the Fire. This 120 page volume contains over one hundred full color reproductions illustrating the breathtaking array of shapes and glazes mastered by the artist. Full pictures alongside close up details demonstrate both the monumental splendor and fine workmanship of each work. It offers an informative glossary on the production and history of many of his glazes. Thomas' essay, "Practice Music, Socrates," expounds on the intuitive and shared strength of art and beauty, especially in the face of our rational and scientific society.
