The art of critique
Although we may dread them, critiques are a necessary part of becoming a successful ceramic artist. Learning how to identify and talk about what makes some pots or sculpture better than others is an important skill for any ceramic artist. Learning this skill helps you figure out what to look for and strive toward in your own body of work. One of the best ways to learn this skill is to spend time with people who have been making ceramic art for a long time. But this is easier said than done for many of us. That’s why we decided to create Talking Clay: Perspectives on a Passion, a series in which movers and shakers in the ceramics field talk ceramic art. This video will help you learn to talk and think critically about ceramic art and recognize the strengths and weaknesses in your own work. If pots are your passion too, this video is for you!
