New clay cups.

I'm exploring a looser way of creating my ceramic forms after I decided that the properties of wet clay are enchanting and inescapable. I want to capture that essence of loose, drooping, spinning clay in my pots. I want to be rid of the sterility that the perfect circle often brings. Geometry and a perfect line are beautiful, but also represents humankind's need to conquer and control nature. Clay is of the earth and I want to glorify all that I find beautiful about it through my forms. This is taking over my life right now, but I hope to send pictures of finished pieces to you soon.
