Tuesdays with Chris: “Tight or Loose Pots”
March 26, 2013 § Leave a comment
Every art form has two distinct expressions on either side of the creative spectrum: the articulate and the free form. Like ballet to modern dance or abstract painting to realism, a potter’s work can be tight or loose. And what can set a piece apart is what Chris calls a “sense of gesture”.
There’s an ongoing process of being in control and out of control. There’s presentation, and there’s representation. Chris is a master of both.
