After a detailed discussion, my tutors and I decided that my current ideas for my project had been developed as far as they usefully could be. We decided that if I was going to continue working in the medium of clay I needed to find other approaches and concepts which would enable me to demonstrate further skills. I understand that I also need to be more abstract with my ideas and shy away from concepts that are too whimsical and obvious.
This has all been quite hard hitting and I feel that I need to take a step back from my project to decide what is important to me and which themes I want to continue to develop. To help me through this quandary and to help me in these huge decisions, I will research other artists’ work, to try and gain some perspective and direction.
