Would you rather have one year of utter vitality, or would you have 10 years of just sort of ho-hum mediocrity? Either choice is fine, but live the choice that you make.

Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
He says that the only time he felt secure when he was making art.
Sure, he had questions about whether he was making the right choices, and he had financial ups and downs, but art made all doubts disappear.
He started doing ceramics when he was in high school, and he slowly surrounded himself with artistic mentors.
He couldn't afford to go to art school, so he took a job driving a truck at an art school and lived nearby.
While there, he met famous glass artist Dale Chihuly and he offered to help him out with his work.
Ended up working with Chihuly for ten years without ever taking a cent of pay, but that apprenticeship shaped his career.
He's now one of the most famous glass artists in the world, with works featured in the Louvre and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Says you'll never be sure that you chose the right path, but that's unimportant; all that matters is that you have faith in your decision.
