CERAMICS - Robin Gianis

The routine that drives my work is simple- living art through life. My work is made alongside living, each day- as a parent, a teacher, a gardener, a cook. I begin to form soft clay into a petal, and stop to teach a class or help a student. I make another, and wash laundry or weed in the garden. This is the way I live and work every day, with art-making always present, always around and throughout me.
A more simplified and refined version of my art is the ideal goal for me, but I have not and may never reach it because my drive to create and evolve is an endless process and a slow progression. Satisfaction comes in the act of weaving creation through life, but satisfaction also never really comes to me. The process is life, and life is the process.
