Pottery -Motif pottery I like the way she incorporates typography onto each object to explain its purpose. It is a good way of seeing not only what we would use it for but also the way she wants it be perceived.

Good: -Unique from other pottery -Simple but effective idea -the type face used -basic colour Bad: -nothing as yet

Editorial -It is an art that existed through pure curiosity -The outcome was planned but yet unplanned -He came up with a concept and got others to respond -It was a way of expressing inner thoughts, feelings and secrets that people couldn’t tell others. -It was aimed at those that had a secret to tell

Good: -an act of therapy -expressive -shows individuality -makes an interesting read Bad: -some of them can be offensive -the outcome could have turned out bad
