It is the candidate's intention to explore the elements inherent with the bottle configuration. Singled out as most important are Form, Balance and Tension, while the bottle or closed form has been chosen due to the vastness of form possibility and over-all technical difficulty of working in that format. The study is predominantly creative, and in that vein, the candidate seeks the experience that will be gained from defining his sincere attitudes and convictions embodied in the results of the study, original ceramic art forms.
