The best tools you could ever use are your hands. They are your direct connection to your medium and feed upon the basic instinct to touch. This tool requires skill, strength, and stability. Your hands can show expression by creating marks or disguising those marks to give the illusion that they were never there. For me, a touch or a gesture can change or alter the shape of a pot to create an enticement for it to be held by the same tool that made it.
