A Note on Interpretation.
The challenge – and fun – of making historically inspired pottery is learning the vocabulary and history of a particular pottery style, and then accepting these as guidelines for exploring, honoring, and expanding that style. The pots I make are primarily individualized works inspired by traditional styles.
Making historically inspired ceramics is not just about the forms alone. It’s about the history of artistic expression on a communal level, and what that story has to offer us today. Because today’s artists have such ease of access to the world’s entire cultural heritage for use as inspiration we have a degree of responsibility to this heritage, lest we become guilty of appropriation. When I present my work to the public in conjunction with living history museums, traditional arts fairs, and similar venues, it must first pass the scrutiny of curators, historians, and academics concerned with educational and preservational efforts. This fascinating arts heritage offers vast creative potential for the potter and endless enjoyment for the ultimate owner.
