Temple is quoted as saying, 'Part of my early training involved making things simply and quickly and in volume to get them out for a price the public could afford and that could give me a living ... I am not academically trained. I just sit down and make it. I don't draw very well so I just make the pots and cut and change and alter them'.

Presented by the Friends of Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery, 1999.
