Clay as a Canvas

For hundreds of years we have used stories and imagination (and a little magic) to help us understand and explain the world around us. Folklore and myth teach us of our morality and of good and evil. The art of storytelling is a craft in itself. Often when we see people talking, we observe the body language as much as we listen to what they actually saying. Many people ‘talk with their hands’. This as far as I am concerned is what makers do. Any maker. We express some of our innermost feelings through the made object. As we already know the use of religious art has been used for hundreds of years to communicate stories and events, pre historic cave paintings, greek pots have all been used as a method to communicate.
When looking at ideas surrounding identity, especially with rural locations and folklore as a subject, it can be very easy to get drawn into the historical sense of past and old traditions, but the present is equally important and I feel that a contemporary sense of belonging and cultural identity is harder in many ways to define as its very subjective.
