CactusPots Posted June 23, 2019 Report Share Posted June 23, 2019 It seems to me, ceramics falls under 2 basic philosophies. Time and space. Seems to me like there should be a third. Time as pertains to music, which is nothing but timing. On time/not on time. When to call leather hard, then to trim, when to call bone dry, When to call a cone down. Obviously, all potters understand timing. Secondly, distance/space. A poorly fit lid, is not a well fit lid. A 1/32 is not a 1/16th. No one understands this better than wood workers. A box is either square. or it's not. No room for interpretation. The material /(wood) l brought it's all to the table. A spalted maple took 100 years to come to reality, Are you equal? Clay doesn't ask this of us. I only bring these 2 examples up, because I have found them to be my de limiters. I have personally failed both as a musician and a wood worker, which has forced me to find the commonality, which I find to be clay. What a long strange trip it's been. Well, if none of this makes any sense, you're in the majority Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
