Showing your Ideas Visually

 

When artists communicate their thoughts and feelings, they often do not make a replica or photorealistic copy of their specific idea.

Instead, they will use the elements and principals of design (line, shape, form, space, direction, size, texture, color, value, balance, unity, repetition, harmony, contrast, and dominance) as well as sculptural and decorative elements in order to create a mood or to reference concepts or situations.

Here are some examples of some creative approaches to communicating ideas and emotions. Each of these objects could be based on a pinched pot or pod.
