A bit of thinking

http://kyoceraadvancedceramics.com/Products/index.htm
the book - Ceramics, Materials for inspirational design

traditional... turner prize... grayson perry

thinking...

reading the book... thinking... from your own dicipline
own... discipline...

lets look at this logically, what is your discipline (or rather what do you want to be your discipline), it is 3D and games... or just games... or 3D games

How in the name of all thats holy can you bring ceramics into games, be they either computer games or "manual" games (those played sans computer).

Kay well instantly Im so not interested in "manual" games, I instantly thought of a sort of cup and ball game thing for Speke Hall or something. So were definately looking at computer games... how can ceramics enhance a computer games (other than some kind or super heat reducing processor thing).

Perhaps some kind of input device... you know like a joystick.. except cooler :)

Product possibilities... engaging with a craft material... its just been discovered what can you do with it in the games field... or can you transfer techniques of game creation into ceramics.

Well at least Ive severely narrowed the brief down by specifying "games" within it.

explore and exploit the application and aesthetic of ceramics.

well, weve got as far as an input device (no, NOT a mouse... I can hear you all thinking out there). Interacting with games... perrhaps also with 3D applications? Perhaps feeling a real material will alter how you model... okay that sounded a bit sick but perhaps theres something to it.

I refer you to my
food blog (where I list my food intake) so that you may understand my thinking this evening (alcohol is included in the list of food).

some product fulfil a need others create one... where is the market for your product.

Cant really think of that till we have an idea.

notes:-
dont dismiss "manual" games
in put device... different textures (not just plastic)
youve completely ignored illustration! 3D illustration... too boring
hit a ceramic plate game gets easier

Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!
I have a art website painting by van gogh

That promotes my very good friend Mark Connors artwork that pretty much covers painting by van gogh
articles and other related themes.
Mark's work is the produce of his passion for art, when looking at every piece the attention to detail is nothing short of spectacular and many a person will notice different details upon each viewing, they are truly a joy to observe. There are many talented artists around the world but few achieve the effect in their work as Mark does, when looking at his work that there is more than just a painting or a illustration there is a element of fantasy behind each piece that brings the inner child out of you and draws you in.
Come and check it out if you get time :-)

excellent blog you have here, will be adding it to my favourites! I have a website on original watercolor art work
and such subjects as original watercolor art work
with many articles like - If you don't have at least one piece of fine art in your home, then you just have no idea what you are missing out on. Whether an original or reproduction piece, fine art adds warmth, beauty and interest to every room. So why is it that people tend to spend lavishly on furniture, carpets and accessories, but do not provide in their budget for the piece that could be the focal point of the room?

We are indeed fortunate now to have a wide range of fine art available to us on the Internet. In just a few short hours, you can browse museums and galleries around the world to find the fine art painting you love. Reproductions of major artwork are available in several formats, from inexpensive prints to hand-painted oils. All at the touch of a button. You can also find original fine art online, often very inexpensively. Artists who have not yet become famed can exhibit their work at online galleries and reach a much wider audience than would be otherwise possible in smaller bricks and mortar galleries. Bringing a new piece of art into your home is always exciting, but imagine how much more intriguing it would be if it was something you'd discovered for yourself through your own research.

While prints will brighten up a room, you should also consider investing in a real oil painting or another form of original on canvas. Since the Internet allows galleries to show their work to a wide audience with little overhead, real paintings can be had for very reasonable prices. And you'll find the texture and substance of a painting as opposed to a print to be well worth the added expense. Home decor is a challenge for many home owners so the hardest part is not necessarily coming up with the theme, but tying it all together and making all of the colors, textures and themes combine. In order to decorate your home successfully there are a few things for you to consider.

First decide what your budget is. Having a budget will help you apportion money to the right areas and ensure that you have enough to finish the job. Next choose a style and make a plan. Decide the style of theme you want for your room or home decor. Do you want a modern or oriental tone? Once this is established you can pick the colors you want to use. Do you want the room to be calming or energizing? Colors have a very influential impact on our moods and feelings. You can then decide on the furniture and accessories you wish to use. This is a good time to select the art or prints you wish to feature. Make sure that the print is reflective of the theme of the room. Do not buy art just because it ties the colors in the room together. Art is a powerful medium that is used to invoke emotion, feeling, and thought so the emotion the art projects should be aligned with the feeling of the room.
take a look if you get the chance:-)
