I've been thinking lately that I need to revamp and revive my "artist statement" now that I am submerging more of myself into my pottery. While in the process of collecting and arranging my thoughts, I came across this statement written by clay artist, Whitney Smith. Although the statement/article isn't her "arist statment" per se, I can deeply relate to what she wrote and am inspired to compose a fresh statement of my own. I admire Whitney's work and find myself drawn to the "voice" in her writing. She expresses with a confident and experienced tone as she shares a professional's perspective of the woes and wonders of being a clay artist.
