Good Read: The Mud-Pie Dilemma

The Mud-Pie Dilemma, the true story of Tom and Elaine Coleman and their struggles to create a successful, loving marriage and family while master potter Tom seeks to realize his extraordinary potential as a ceramic artist. The first edition of this book by writer and photojournalist John Nance ended with the Colemans achieving high artistic and critical success, and low financial rewards. The second extends their story from 1977 to 2002, from a farmhouse and studio in Canby, Oregon, to a house with a swimming pool and studio in the desert outside Las Vegas, Nevada. Insightfully illustrated with photographs throughout.
