clay – walking the line between dirt and art?
nature is dirty, messy, gross. flowers bloom for a few days and then their petals fall and rot away. butterflies flutter through the sky only to land on a turd for their favorite afternoon snack. all life eventually turns to goo. but for a moment, ceramics can become the opposite of this gross, messy, yet beautiful process. the goo becomes the permanent, the gross becomes the lovely, the turd becomes the artist.
