fun over function

February 10, 2022

As a potter, I can tell you that function gets in the way of my fun. The minute I start measuring asparagus stalks, I lose my groove. I prefer to make a piece, and then figure out its use. And I think if we’re creative with our vessels, we can find a function for all of them. Tomatillos? Tea bags? Diamonds? I’ve got a bowl for you. I’m also very happy to fill my home with impractical objects that look beautiful and bring me joy. That’s it. Their only function. This week, I’ve made a series of platters that are just that. Someone might use them for shells, marbles or anything tiny and collectible, but I rather like them as they are. Circles within circles; fun over function.
