Greg Stahly had done a soda vapor glazing, and this was appearing to me as a work of art in the field of pottery. The work appears to require particular skills since pottery is a form of art that occurs in a certain piece. Stahly, talked about his desire to create things that can be used by other people, for instance bowls that are used for serving food, a pot for watering flowers, whereby he combines colors in an attractive way, and this applied in his pottery.
Stahly’s Soda Vapor without the glazing was an extraordinarily tidy piece of art since he made use of firewood, while the pottery is depicted naturally due to the colors on the flames, ashes and wood. In my opinion, they may are confusing at the first instance, but with time one can comprehend, and results to be interesting. For instance, the cup appears to have orange color, reddish, and it appears to be covered with ash. In addition, Stahly ensured that the things made through his art of Soda Vapor were in the way that they can be used in life activities, instead of things that can only be viewed and touched.
Therefore, there was confusion created in the distinction between activities of Greg Stahly, whether he is an artist or a person manufacturing products for sale. In this case, I did not understand the art of Ceramics in terms the way it can be used and at the same time be considered a form of general art. Other inflatable shapes that made by Stahly can be seen in the museum, whereby he used the Cadaver bag that are stitched and inflated. He also made inflatable shapes that were floated on air six feet high using strings as a resemblance of death. However, this art appears weird, but the fact is his idea was to make objects that are full of fun when a person understands the art. In my opinion, this is inventing things that can be sold from the store, and it is not a form of art.
