It’s ultimately all about communicating. No matter what creative endeavour occupies our time we are doing it to communicate. Sometimes it is a specific message we want to convey, and sometimes it’s like shouting out to whoever’s listening “Hey notice me!”
I have been considering my work lately with the idea of communication in mind. Looking at what precisely I want to communicate through my work.
Particularly when I am decorating my pots I feel I am in touch with an aspect of the unconscious. In this place I experience vulnerability coupled with the freedom and joy of self expession. I am hoping that this is transmitted to the viewer of my work in some way, and if it is then the communication is successful.
