“Simplicity is the glory of expression.” Walt Whitman

Though I am not sure this quote can apply to my work, illustrated is what I consider a simple serving bowl. The decoration comes about where the bowl was dipped into a secondary glaze and my fingers acted as resist. There are times when it is painfully obvious to me that the bulk of my work is not simple. Sometimes fussy, over decorated or just too busy, but there are times, when the right frame of mind, the right music and the right pot all conspire to simplify what I am doing. I look at this bowl as an example of a simplicity I can reach out for.
