Wednesday - Thinking about Japan

I was wracking my brain trying to come up with a way to work through what has been happening in Japan in my art.  Greg and I were discussing it just as I had placed one of my broken vessels on the banding wheel to glaze.  He pointed out the tension in the piece and how that fit the struggle that was happening.  Then we talked about symbols and he gave me some great ideas to use to decorate it.  This pot (front and back) is the result of that conversation.  Thanks Greg!

Once he pushed me through the wall I was facing my mind started racing and watch this space for some of the other ideas I have for these pots.  I think it will be a compelling series.
