I'm not good with words (that's why I married Zack Clemmons). Pottery is a little more straightforward than sculpture, not as much explaining. Even though I only do pottery these days, I still have a deep passion for sculpture. And it's really hard to put words to that work. Coming up with a piece, explaining it, giving it meaning. I don't usually know how to communicate a piece to others. I just know I need to touch and work with the material world. I can't put words to what I inwardly experience. But I can shove my hand in clay or know the texture of ash with my hands and say, "Ah, yes. That is what my soul feels."
We were required to create a video to aid our installation. It includes shots of various parts of the process of the piece, as well as, scenes from the woodfire.
