Pause Now Go - Ceramic pot

This piece gives form to a poem, “Pause,” by Jeffery Beam. (I’ve changed his words in the first line, from “before you turn the page” to “before you turn around”). The poem repeats 10 times diagonally on the surface, ending at the top, near the small opening, with “Now go.” It invites the viewer to interact with the piece, either by going inside, to the mysterious interior, or turning around and walking away.

before you turn around
Pause with me…
That’s it
The ancient place
The now place
Now go…
