As you may have heard, Patrick Swayze passed away yesterday. I love movies, and Swayze was the star of many important ones of my youth. The Outsiders, Red Dawn, Dirty Dancing, Roadhouse and Point Break, all classics. Yet there is one film that is the most important to ceramicists.
That is Ghost.
Ghost is the film that spurred a thousand pottery classes. It has been mocked and spoofed through out popular culture over the years, but there is no denying that Mr. Swayze was involved in the most popular moment of Ceramics in pop culture history. For that I say sleep well great man.
