Is there anyone else out there with this slightly neurotic effort for perfection in the overall weight of the form and shape.


Not me, I like HEAVY, things that are light weight especially for their size and expected materials feel "cheap" to me. A large very thin walled hollow bronze sculpture that is light feels very cheap to me, like plastic, so everything I've ever made is always substantial and heavy, maybe it's a man thing who knows!


More likely than being a "man thing" it is that most posters to this thread are thinking pots and you're thinking sculpture.

better contact to moderator. That is weird.

I guess so! It looks like on post 19 of this thread RDWolff took a quote from Nelly and made it yours. Then, of course, every time he was quoted, it copied the mistake. I'm sure he didn't do it on purpose but he needs to fix it.

"To me the greatest thing is to live beauty in our daily life and to crowd every moment with things of beauty.  It is then, and then only that  the art of the people as a whole is endowed with it's richest significance.  For it's products are those made by great a many craftsmen for the mass of the people, and the moment this art declines the life of the nation  is removed far away from beauty.  So long as beauty abides in only in a few articles created by a few geniuses, the kingdom of beauty is nowhere near realization."                                                                                 - Bernard Leach

Sometimes I think that, too! That you're the one with the imbalance.
