“This Machine Kills Hate”

timthumbThis is a picture of a pottery wheel. Artist Roberto Lugo believes pottery wheels can kill hate. Roberto Lugo describes himself as a “potter, activist, culture-maker, rapper, poet and educator.” Watch this powerful and incredibly moving 15 minute video of ceramic artist Roberto Lugo’s NCECA speech. It was recorded on Saturday morning, March 28th in the Rhode Island Convention Center, for the NCECA conference (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts).

He wrote:

 I have a dream where I can change the world by making pots, showing others how to make pots, and by bringing those very vessels to a meal – a meal where everyone is valued.  My work creates a place where hate is put up agains love and finally loses.
