Writing/Essay/Journal
Potter Warren MacKenzie creates pottery to be used in the home. He tries hard to make his work affordable to people and says, “If you break one – it’s not a major loss.” When you think of art, do you picture day-to-day items like the pots MacKenzie makes or things in a museum not to be touched? How would you feel if someone broke a piece of art you made?

Activity
MacKenzie likes creating a connection with the people who buy his art when they use his pots every day. Create your own piece of art that can be used every day. Can you create art that meets a functional need?
