Mass Produced Individualism
The presence of the process. Enthusiasm and play of imagination occur as you handle wet clay. The degree, the purity, the intensity. Clearly something missing so often from the industrially produced ceramics.
The problem is not a matter of neither hand or a machine, but of utilizing both. My aim was to find a natural way how handwork and the machine could co-operate and supplement each other’s shortcomings. Creating a simple ceramic form moulded by a machine, afterwards curved by hand into two unique pieces. And the most important, letting it be seen that there has been a real hand involved. To me that means that human error is a quality. The presence of the maker and the enormous admiration to the act of making is a valuable expression.
