Art is about expressive intent
So when throwing something on the pottery wheel I feel that part of me is imbedded into the piece .
Whether it is a single piece or a repeat form it still carries it.
In throwing time I’m very young and still have this desire to explore ( though mature in age ).
A lot of my work is functional art and so typically has a use.
Glazing and firing are a whole big can of worms.
I find that this torments me the most, as in the kiln it is all great and bad at the same time
Until you can take your first peek , usually very quickly and then you have to injure hours more of waiting for it to cool
The satisfaction of the work as it is finished is enormous
And makes me proud of the work that I am in .
