"Utilitarian pots may never be part of an avant-garde, a cup lacks the shock value typically associated avant-garde movements. Yet artistic potters are privy to a unique and subversive role in contemporary art.; whereas much of 20th Century art has been an attempt to merge art and life, pulling Art out of museums, or bringing life into the setting of the museum, the functional pot continues to hold a place in everyone's home. It is in the home, rather than an artistic institution, that I feel we potters should exploit. A cup is one of the first things we hold in morning, and often one of the last thing we touch at night. By reintroducing artistic ware into the home we can reconnect art and the everyday."
