Piece: The Sculptor

The Sculptor

8″x4″x8″

Bisqued Stoneware

This piece was fueled from an angry day on the pottery wheel. Personally, I have always been a sculptor, and throwing has never been my strong suit. Especially at the beginning of my pottery career, centering and throwing could be very frustrating for me. This piece was a reflection of that frustration, a sculptor who is expressing their anger towards their piece that has become unfixably off-center on the pottery wheel. It was left unglazed in a relation to the form- the piece is naked and vulnerable of glaze, as one sits down and becomes vulnerable at the wheel, which makes for all the more the frustration when a mistake is made, as expressed through the form.
