Earthly Arts Pottery
As a clay artist for four decades, my construct and intent for the creations of my hands and mind are simple. I am trying to bring into the world objects which impart a feeling and mentality of beauty.
The inclusion of the visual, how it enters the eye and so mind, is meant to suggest, without demand, a sense of balance, ease, and harmony and thereby yield strength and content(ment) to the mind.
Though the work may be deemed a functional in nature , it can morph into a presence which alters environment by simply being . It then does not have to be a used to function , and so becomes effective and affecting . This would be to yield change, and so congruent with life.
The leap which clay offers, is the adroitness of inclusion by function and use, multiplying capacity. If I am good enough as a thinker, an artist, and a craftsman, I can build a bridge upon which beauty can travel and so by begin a synergy.
