Questions

Currently having a day of constant questioning about my work.

Why do we practice in ceramics, creativity, practice of material – pushing the limits to find further exploration of the material, for tableware, for sculpture, for new visions – but how does this help others?

Why am I making the work I am making, playing with shapes and pictures

My work is very primitive and primary

Meaningless work?

I’m remembering just how much being an artist, supporting my ideas, as well as working in ceramics – the skill and craftsman ship takes so much time and a lot of seriously hard work

I feel as though I have to use glazes on my work, but I feel this would take away the attention to the ceramic forms

it would be an overload and overstimulating piece of work

what is happening with the curation of work?

i need a bigger space for applying my work as a curated project

making another silhoette

because i like it

its in the shape of the pot as a replica of my smaller stacked pieces

BUT i want to take ceramics away from the pot form

otherwise i feel I’m following the guidelines of the generic potter- what outsiders see ceramics to be

i need to start creating a new pathway a new realm for ceramics to be further explored

forms and outcomes that we may not realise even existed

VESSEL

giving work value

making in the process of expressing ones self

vessels created through sense of rituals – source of civilisations and culture, it’s about bestowing a form

a shared meaning develops in a vessel which goes above and beyond what is necessary in life

relating to what is sublime and greater

lifes neccessities

an intended blurriness that will hopefully lead to a concrete assertion

the functionality of my work does not relate to the potential of being useful, but rather to the logic involved in its manufacture.Photo 22-05-2015 12 59 46
