Abstract

People who want to make their work in their own way often need an organization to do it. The solitary potter we visited frames her work via her own studio and wants no one else to share the solitude within which she practices her skill. She finds selling something of a distraction; she might welcome an organizational connection that would free her from the need for selling. Even being let alone to work may take a supportive organizational structure. To sell, to get supplies, even to have efforts publicly legitimized may mean working within an organization.
