"Spirit Feast"©
Discussion:
Art for Its Own Sake
I get mail asking why I "eat from dishes" made with Polymer Clay. The quick answer is: I do not eat from these dishes.

The title of the place setting is "Spirit Feast" for a reason. It is a feast for the eyes and the soul. It is not and has never been intended as a working place setting. It is a sculpture. Same with the teapot. Same with the pitcher. However, you could use the pitcher or teapot as a flower vase if you wished. They are based on ceramic vessels.

I believe that the clay is in my life for the pure expression of art, not necessarily for practical use. I love objects that are meaningful in their own right. I don't usually make things to be useful, I make things to look at. This is rare in the Polymer Clay community (where jewelry is often the focus) and is one big reason why I put up my web page in the first place.

Thanks for listening.
