Browse the work of ceramic artisan Gary Beaumont at Illinois Artisans, Chicago this month.
The 10,000 hour-rule by Malcolm Gladwell is a bench mark often cited when trying a new skill. So what happens after an artisan puts in those hours? Ceramic artisan Gary Beaumont put in his hours while work another job and then in last 10 years turned to ceramics full time.
Guess what? It appears that practice really does make a difference. Beaumont brought up the bench mark while speaking with staff of the Illinois Artisans Program,
"I think I have reached 10,000 hours and things are jelling. I’m getting to the point I can think of something, make it, and it works… For artists is really is true, experience makes a difference. For something to look and feel right, but also works and is beautiful."
