Over the last three decades of making pots, the works themselves, in many ways, have been my teachers. They’ve called me to take note of the little things: a small change of line, a minor shift of visual weight, the rhythm and lyric qualities of a piece. But most of all the works themselves have called me to look more closely….to expand my visual literacy…to enlarge my conceptions of beauty…to see and appreciate the details!
Over the course of the next months I hope to share with you some images that have had a strong influence on my way of seeing, my way of photographing and presenting my work.
Along with this change in the way I see pots has come an interest in expanding my literacy and enlarging my understanding about my clay art business. This ‘paradigm of seeing’ has caused me to pay attention to the details involved in running a successful studio clay art business. Over the next months I hope to share with you some of what I consider to be the important details of running a successful clay art business….the details, the literacy and the beauty. Stay tuned.
Talk to you soon.
