Reviewing my work from the past 45 years, recalling the struggles
both technically and inspirationally, I find a sense of satisfaction. Success and
failure were sometimes one and the "accident" often a reality.
I now realize this personal quest is not unique to artists, it is a universal search
operating on all levels at all times by all people throughout the world. Each
individual contributes in their own way to the understanding of the "universal,"
and the legacy to the world is a celebration and reflection of that individual.
And more comments: Ken Shores has been collected by major museums around the world.
He is historically significant as a major player in the movement during the 1950's which
raised pottery from a functional level to a level of fine art.
