For my off site exhibition I picked the Weisman and their current pottery display. Pottery fascinates me because most of the time you see manufactured versions in your home that you buy from the stores but when you buy something that has been hand crafter or that you know has been hand crafted it puts a whole new meaning and story behind the piece.
Many people take a pottery class at some point in their life and do not realize the physical labors of the making, forming, and glazing. I myself have taken a few introductory courses and know from first hand that it is not an easy task.
Pottery from all over the world fascinates me because it reflects the time period and culture of where it was made just as a canvas painting does. Other than functional pieces, pottery can also be made of some decorative pieces. Overall I think if you had the time and energy pottery is a media that would be interesting to explore and see the options.
