This section covers pots which have not quite left the realm of functionality. Paradigm jugs , jars and vases: can be used or enjoyed as empty vessels. Atmospheric glazes evoke particular places or points in time.
When the maker has put in the time to study and practice with a material; pushed it to its limits and been pushed back by it; the interaction is equal, intention becomes intuition. There is no need to use verbal interpretation. The pot is how it is. Refreshing simple.
