Good advice. I tell engineering students the very same thing about engineering. You should do it only if you can't imagine yourself doing anything else.

Switching topics - Great to read the NCECA stories. Do keep them coming. Much appreciated

I was once told by a very wise piano teacher, Amanda Vick Lethco.  ' don't consider being a musician unless you can't NOT be musician."    I think that is true for both musicians and potters.   

Whenever I've had a student ask about becoming an artist, I ask them, if they didn't become an artist, what would they do?  If they have an answer to that I tell them they should definitely do that, because they're not going to make it as an artist.
