Surface treatment and form blend in my pieces to the point that I blur the working distinction between clay and glaze. In the past glazing was almost all that mattered in my pots, and while it still dominates in my newer efforts I find I am now experimenting more with formal elements. It was always only incidental that my plates were food friendly. I only made them to have a surface to glaze and I think people bought them as much to look at as to eat off of. The flat clay slabs I manipulate now lack all reference to food serving surfaces, and I find a new freedom in leaving those functional associations out of the work. Am I now a sculptor and no longer 'just' a potter? I'm not totally sure myself, but I know one thing ' no one will ask if it's dishwasher-safe anymore.
