Of course I've known of Betty Woodman, a celebrated potter and ceramic artist, but I knew nothing of her life or family, so when one of my pottery students told me she'd just seen a documentary film called, "The Woodman's," about Ms. Woodman's family I couldn't wait to get to the theater to see it. We went last night and it was fine, an artwork itself, about art, artists, and creation, family, tragedy, and healing.
