HESITATION

(C) JOHN

Until recently, cognition and emotion were thought to be separate elements.  Now, new research indicate a strong relation with cognition affecting emotion. HESITATION is part of my “Cognitive Emotions” series, in which the primary contour of a piece is intended to suggest or evoke a human emotion such as surprise, elation, or skepticism and the glaze to create a secondary contour showing the interplay between cognition and emotion.  HESITATION is hand-built and raku-fired using a smooth variation of my own artist-made paper clay and a high-gloss/high-reduction raku glaze, set on a MDF base.  15″ x 9″ x 9″.
