I'll be back at Uni. this year (2010).
I felt I was loosing direction last year, and thought access to people and equipment in one place would be the best way to find that direction.
My research will investigate the relevance of hand made ceramic tableware in today's disposable society.
A topic that is obviously very close to me and one that I think we all need to think about.
I will pose the following questions:
1. Is a craftsperson's skill irrelevant in a developed society.
2. Should a person who has a desire to use their hands for making, more than is just practical, only make "art".
3. Should something like tableware have something to offer other than just the function of containing food.
4. Can it add warmth and well-being through being individual; containing within a sense of the humanity that made it.
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
