Schizophrenia in Recovery, S.K. Webster

Schizophrenia in Recovery

Raku Ceramic Bottle 9x5x5 

One model of schizophrenia states that it may be precipitated by extreme stress.  This raku bottle went through the extreme stress of being doused in a bucket of cold water while still in the red hot stage.  It shattered from too much stress.  Schizophrenia literally means "shattered mind." After "therapy" the bottle recovered all of it's original form and most of it's function.  A raku bottle is not meant to hold water, but to express ideas.  The idea that this raku piece expresses for me is that through recovery the basic integrity of the person remains strong.
