I was really happy with the feedback from my assessment, but knew I needed to make a decision about what direction I should choose for the next period of my development. Coming into the second year marks the half way point and for me felt like I needed to really start to 'buckle down' and focus on a narrower area of practice. Some of the pieces from my last assessment had been more successful than others but the ideas and potential as starting points excited me and I was feeling really motivated.
After discussions with Rob I felt that my strongest piece and the piece I was most interested in was my funghal/cell like connected piece in red clay. I needed to explore what I could do with this style of making, using different clays, scaling work up and down to determine what that would do.
