A good answer to a bad question (1 min)

“Does a potter need literature?”

The mildmannered and very gentle potter, Edmund de Waal is asked this question and almost leaps forward in his chair to  say that it is a terrible question – and then responds passionately.

The asker of the question begins backing off, with an acknowledgement that it was a terrible question, but a brilliant answer.
