Summary
William Daley and Shari Lewis discuss the capacity of man’s hands and the way hands in many parts of the world today still remain the primary means by which useful and beautiful objects are created to fill people’s needs. Pottery, as created by primitive people of the American continent, is an example of this idea. Several Girl Scouts work with Mr. Daley creating objects from clay, indicating the satisfaction which comes from creative activity. Mr. Daley demonstrates the properties of clay and introduces ways in which is can be useful by untrained hands.
