The need to possess art is first of all catering to the ‘aesthetical needs’ but besides that, it’s also a way to show off social status. Often enough, we hoard art not only to fulfill our own needs but also to pass it down to our children. Just try to recall all those stories about art pieces found in the attics and basements of old houses.
Clay is the most important tool in my trade. It’s worth noting, that clay also happens to be one of the oldest building materials used by mankind, and it’s thanks to it that great buildings of the past (or even whole cities) came to life. Even animals tend to use it as a material for their homes. For me – clay is my means of artistic expression.
