Here are my various versions of my statement, for show applications that restrict the length:
50 characters or less (this one also works for 5 words or less)
Functional pottery, modern Asian rustic.
100 characters or less
Functional, food-safe pottery, mostly wheel-thrown, fired to 2200°F, modern Asian rustic.
20 words or less
Functional, food-safe pottery, mostly wheel-thrown, fired to 2200°F. Modern Asian rustic, with Korean and Maryland roots.
Mine are a lot like this, too. Seems most of the shows want 100 characters or less, so there's really not a lot you can do. Don't think of it as an artists statement in these cases. It's simply a short description of your work and process.
