Here’s how it goes: there will be 5 groups of about 23 images in each group. Each group will consist of works from various decades and will be shown for a month or so. At the end of the month a new group will rotate in.

 

This is the fifth rotation and final rotation; Group Five follows –

My devotion, as a teacher and artist, has been to “process orientation” – a term much misunderstood. What I mean by that is: process orientation as opposed to technical or procedural training – which assumes a specific goal. The intention of training in procedure is to produce an attractive product – imitating or homaging something attractive to you. This is a good early goal because mimesis is the basic of all childhood learning.
But – entering into a process is giving oneself to self-discovery. In this mode any product is unknown in advance because it is, at the beginning, nonexistent. It doesn’t reveal itself prematurely but unfolds as an experience of revelation.
While as a teacher I celebrate the rich variety of ceramic expression, I am personally drawn to work which has provocative, metaphoric implications, that evoke mystery.  




I consider all my own work functional though admittedly non-domestic.
Technically, I have Lo-tech preferences.  The playing/working sequence I honor goes like this;


SENSATION (the body as receptor)
IMAGE (mythic imagination)
FORM (revelation through clay forming)
IDEA (understanding the formal image)
HEALING (the ultimate possibility through art) 


And of course, it never unfolds quite like that.

Every day we slaughter the finest impulses. That is why we get a heart-ache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master and recognize them as our own, as the tender shoots which we stifled because they lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criteria of truth and beauty. Every man, when he gets quiet, when he becomes desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive from the same source. There is no mystery about the origins of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians. We have only to open up, only to discover what is already there.
