"A vessel of baked clay: do not put it in a glass case alongside rare precious objects. It would look quite out of place. Its beauty is related to the liquid that it contains and to the thirst that it quenches. Its beauty is corporal: l see it, I touch it, I smell it, l hear it. If it is empty, it must be filled; if it is full, it must be emptied…  Not an object to contemplate: an object to use."

 (Octavio Paz)
