Pavlov’s Dog

Is everything the result of conditioning? All of our actions. All of our desires?

“The Kiss” The first of the slipped collaborative greenware yunomi are drying on the wareboard waiting for the kiln. Jessica Fong provided both the forms and the kiss stencils. I chipped in the flowers and pieced the composition together.

Why would a person habitually make art?

Attention?

Money?

Escape?

Control?

Small cut paper flower stencils.

Does it start with someone making us feel special and significant as a result of something we did? Something that we just enjoyed doing? Does it make any difference when people encourage us? 

Appreciation 

Applause

Cash

Incentivize 

“The Kiss”

Is this our place to hide? A place inside ourselves. 

Isolation

A refuge 

A studio


Is this our way of holding back the chaos and creating something beautiful from it?
