Jacob Bodilly gets to grips with the idea that capturing the spirit and standards of historical ceramic making can lead to the production of finer contemporary work.
Nothing is more exposing than clay. It reveals the truth of the people who work with it.
(Bodilly, J. 2015)
Such an honest statement and one I am becoming increasingly pressed upon to agree with. The more I delve into the habits and culture of making the more I am (almost accidentally) discovering the importance of truth being revealed in work.
