Thoughts on pottery and ceramics?

>> No.4199576

I spent a semester learning ceramics at college, and I enjoyed the process. We obviously started from the bottom, so it was all very simple, but I enjoyed the physicality of it.

Not something I’d dedicate my life to or anything, but if it were more accessible I’d still make something every now and then.

Ceramics is very therapeutic. Wheel throwing is both satisfying and challenging. Feels good using/selling dinnerware that you handmade. Making sculpture with ceramics is also very enjoyable.
I would never go for a ceramics MFA though. Too elitist for someone like me who mostly enjoys the craftsmanship side of it.

>if it were more accessible
the only thing holding pottery back from the mainstream. a poor ass hobo like me can't just start making ceramics

because of that, and that a lot of pottery is rooted in tradition, i think the artform has been advancing incredibly slowly. there's so much that hasn't been done yet
>Too elitist
some of the older dudes are dickheads.

Pottery is nice, as long as it’s not too up its own ass or too long, the one exception being epic pottery, since that tells a story so it gets a pass.
Ceramics is also great, but it gets cold in the winter, so I prefer a rug.
