I am investigating how values inherent in poetry can be combined with those inherent in ceramic work.
There are long traditions of combining ceramic work with calligraphy, largely based on the specific culture and religion of the makers of the work.
I am looking for the contradiction between the divine represented in poetry and the crude reality of interaction between humans. The concept of hope can only exist where improvement is possible. Hope is a human sentiment, which is developed when we identify our imperfection. Change occurs when hope is translated into action. I am reflecting on the precise moment where hope is expressed, but is not yet translated into action. This is the moment in time when the potential for change is the greatest
