Ah! This show is a physical explanation of discovery - an attempt to better understand the role of contemporary hand thrown pottery and what it means to make it. A hand thrown pot can contain nourishment as well as it can provide it. Pottery can infuse artful practice and a direct relationship to the producer into everyday objects. It is the potter's responsibility to continue to push form and surface to make the best pots possible. Well crafted handmade objects support the argument for locality and autonomy, which give them greater value in a contemporary context rooted in ambiguous commodity consumption. It is our responsibility to craft the things we consume.
