What Is Your Strongest Concern In Making Your Work?

Recommended Posts

Do you focus on form, texture, surface design, glaze? What is the ultimate concern or focus when you begin working to the final product? Do you go through transitions as the piece goes through stages?

I focus on form first and then worry about texture and glaze later.  If you think about it, if you don't have the form right you don't need texture or glaze.  I spend a lot of time testing and retesting glazes at the end of a project it can make or break it. I tend to work on large tile murals and think of them as projects not individual pieces.   Denice

My first concern is function. I do not want adequate performers, I want to make pots that excel at their jobs.

thats a great question. I truly have no idea about that. I just enjoy working with the clay wether it's throwing, sculpting, or pulling handles.  I don't enjoy glazing unless it's a painted piece with underglaze and clear coat over. So I guess I should say for me it's the "Creative process" that I enjoy.   The concern is for all of the creative components to hopefully be cohesive with each other. Matching glaze with the body, a good feeling handle etc.
