Perfectly imperfect. Why?
In your mind think of something that is "perfect". What makes it "perfect"? I use quotations for this simple reason, "perfect" is a description we use to often, yet it is determined on an individual basis.
/pərˈfekt make (something) completely free from faults or defects, or as close to such a condition as possible.
Why do we want perfect? Does it make something more valuable? Does it make you feel better? Why do we want perfect? Even as you look at the word over and over it starts to look not so perfect after all.
The reality to me is there is not such thing as "perfect" it is all in our own mind. I struggled for many years, condemning myself for not making my pottery perfect.
I struggled with the finishing process that is inherently needed to make works look polished or perfect.
I decided some time ago to accept these imperfections and go with it.
Because in my mind I have yet to find anything perfect so why try to create it.
This is my story.
