As the title suggests, it is the Language of Pots, the way they speak to us that I have explored in this project. Published as a CD-ROM it is part of INSITE, a collection of 10 original digital artworks commissioned by Suffolk County Council and are available to view at selected libraries across Suffolk or are available on loan.

Laid out as a number of interactive multimedia pages, viewers explore the CD-ROM from an opening home page. There is no set order or narrative but I think there is a logic in a clockwise navigation of the page icons.

Fulfilling the commission brief the first pages are informative, giving viewers an insight into my approach to pottery. Pages on morphology are followed by a sound page. I then look at how multimedia technology can by used, concentrating particularly at Quick-Time-VR.

Asked to make some new work, 'Globe Series' and 'Mirrored Forms' are pages of virtual pots. Globe Series explores ideas of how pots reflect the maker and his/her environment. Mirrored Forms are experiments in symmetry. Finally a virtual sketchbook holds material generated during the project.
