I am unconcerned with whether or not ceramics is considered art. What does concern me is how we relate to these functional utility objects in an artistic way. We would not expect to understand a painting in the dark nor a sculpture in two dimensions, so why then should we expect to understand functional objects without understanding their function.
It is that relation that I find interesting because it asks so little from the viewer. It cares not for age, education, gender, nationality, or personal belief structures. It allows anyone to come to some understanding of the work if by no other means than its function. It allows for an immediate and straightforward connection between the viewer and the work and then to the potter.
