Why we make clay objects is often a personal choice. We’ve posted several Artist Q&A’s on the topic of “why I’m an artist” (see Sunshine Cobb’s video, read Lisa Naples’s response, and watch Bryan Hopkin’s video for more Q&A’s!) and all the responses have been very different. Lindsay Oesteritter’s response focuses on clay as a versatile material. In tonight’s Artist Q&A, Lindsay discusses why she loves the variety of building techniques and marks you can make with clay, as well as its tactile nature. –Jennifer Poellot Harnetty, editor.
