I have been using pottery as my expression for about 20 years now.
I am still trying to figure out why and what I am trying to do with it.
Even though I am not sure what I am trying to do, I feel that the flow of this act of expression is coming to me.
In my work, I do not try to put meaning or emotion into things.
I don't try to convey consciousness, but to capture the sensation.
I found the word "qualia" in my search for words to describe the things I create.
It means the texture of the senses, and refers to the pure "feeling" or "quality" itself before it is flavored.
I hope that my ceramic works will be like those words.
