"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"Do I ever break my molds? That’s one of the strange elements. If somebody asks me if I am going to make any more of a particular work, I always say that I don’t know. I’m not trying to create the mystique of saying there are only so many left so the value is supposed to go up. I find it a little bit offensive when someone makes ten objects and then destroys the mold so no more can be made. It seems phony to me."
