Art Worker and Sometime Potter


15 cm



Pots are easy to categorise, being receptacles for air or liquid, and this page shows things I make that can be named ‘pots’.  But a pot/vessel can be suggestive of what is human, in ways that allow it to stray into the realm of what we might call art.


I think I know when to call a pot a pot, but don’t always know what art is (do we?), which is why I might be tempted to describe some work I make as ‘sculptural’ (but never ceramic sculptural).


Above is a broken pot that looks a bit like art looks.  Below is a potter making pots.


Or is it?
