Liminal places...

I don't know what it is yet about this space but I keep being drawn to it. The clay I collected from my current village is next to it but it still draws me. having had a brief conversation with Alice Lyons about liminal places and then considering further what that might mean, I realised there may well be a whole new tangent unfolding for exploration regarding my own place within the work and thoughts about the temporal location vessels I have in mind.

In ethnographic research, 'the researcher is...in a liminal state, separated from his own culture yet not incorporated into the host culture'[70]—when he or she is both participating in the culture and observing the culture. The researcher must consider the self in relation to others and his or her positioning in the culture being studied. En.wikipedia.org. (2018). Liminality.
