Aside from the first and foremost responsibility of the craftsman, (to bring together the skills and materials necessary to create competent and well crafted work), the craftsman can also choose to take it the game further… by adding more of themselves into the work; sharing small personal vignettes of a hidden internal life; snippets of secret parables; hints of poetry, suggestively sublime.

This isn’t merely a decorative exercise… This is an attempt at subjective substance.

There’s not much push back against the stance that maintains that the meaning brought to an image by an artist is less relevant than the meaning projected onto the work by the viewers themselves. 

The artist invites others to puzzle out a meaning by creating an open framework that’s suggestive of a narrative without spelling it out; it’s through the act of puzzling out a meaning that’s the experience is created. This is layered onto the tactile sensory experience of the object itself. 

A cliqued stance I know… but it’s a valid one. The engagement with puzzling out meaning is itself an experience. To do so while in the act of relaxing into a drink just adds to all of this… A layered sense of tranquil satisfaction.
