These pictures where shot

These pictures where shot over three years ago in my very first studio space in a small bedroom. This was the week I got my first "big" order. It took me 2 months to make 36 pieces. They were delicate little handled cups and jars. I remember thinking ..how the fuck am I ever going to make money?! Over time I got faster and made every mistake possible in production. I was willing to be wrong and was scared all the time. I took every order possible and made anything anyone asked for, challenging myself everytime not knowing if my result would be successful. Now, its takes me 36 hours to produce about 70 perfect pieces from start to finished product. All I can say is keep going, even if you don't understand the how. - - #hardwork #persistence #pottery #ceramics #melrice #melriceceramica #clay #artist #wheelthrowing #sanfrancisco #ceramica

An extract on #artist

Wiktionary defines the noun 'artist' (Singular: artist; Plural: artists) as follows: A person who creates art. A person who makes and creates art as an occupation. A person who is skilled at some activity. A person whose trade or profession requires a knowledge of design, drawing, painting, etc. The Oxford English Dictionary defines the older broad meanings of the term "artist": A learned person or Master of Arts One who pursues a practical science, traditionally medicine, astrology, alchemy, chemistry A follower of a pursuit in which skill comes by study or practice A follower of a manual art, such as a mechanic One who makes their craft a fine art One who cultivates one of the fine arts traditionally the arts presided over by the muses

The Greek word "techn", often translated as "art," implies mastery of any sort of craft. The adjectival Latin form of the word, "technicus", became the source of the English words technique, technology, technical. In Greek culture each of the nine Muses oversaw a different field of human creation: Calliope (the 'beautiful of speech'): chief of the muses and muse of epic or heroic poetry Clio (the 'glorious one'): muse of history Erato (the 'amorous one'): muse of love or erotic poetry, lyrics, and marriage songs Euterpe (the 'well-pleasing'): muse of music and lyric poetry Melpomene (the 'chanting one'): muse of tragedy Polyhymnia or Polymnia (the '[singer] of many hymns'): muse of sacred song, oratory, lyric, singing, and rhetoric Terpsichore (the '[one who] delights in dance'): muse of choral song and dance Thalia (the 'blossoming one'): muse of comedy and bucolic poetry Urania (the 'celestial one'): muse of astronomy No muse was identified with the visual arts of painting and sculpture. In ancient Greece sculptors and painters were held in low regard, somewhere between freemen and slaves, their work regarded as mere manual labour. The word art derives from the Latin "ars" (stem art-), which, although literally defined, means "skill method" or "technique", and conveys a connotation of beauty. During the Middle Ages the word artist already existed in some countries such as Italy, but the meaning was something resembling craftsman, while the word artesan was still unknown. An artist was someone able to do a work better than others, so the skilled excellency was underlined, rather than the activity field. In this period some "artisanal" products (such as textiles) were much more precious and expensive than paintings or sculptures. The first division into major and minor arts dates back at least to the works of Leon Battista Alberti (14041472): De re aedificatoria, De statua, De pictura, which focused on the importance of the intellectual skills of the artist rather than the manual skills (even if in other forms of art there was a project behind). With the Academies in Europe (second half of 16th century) the gap between fine and applied arts was definitely set. Many contemporary definitions of "artist" and "art" are highly contingent on culture, resisting aesthetic prescription, in much the same way that the features constituting beauty and the beautiful cannot be standardized easily without corruption into kitsch.
