As an artist who continues to strive for perfection – Wabi Sabi has been a challenge for me to embrace. Brother Thomas, who was a Monk and a very accomplished potter once remarked that his longing to create a perfect vessel was instead a need to create a more authentic self.
I realize, with every piece that comes through me, not only is the vessel imperfect – so am I. And in that realization, there is freedom. My work will never be finished. It really isn’t about that. It’s about the undulating and seemingly disconnected and beautifully broken twists and turns life’s journey presents us. The fluidity of my work is Wabi Sabi. No straight lines or preconceived notions to get in the way. The spiritual path to authenticity……..one coil at a time.
