Elevator Speech

I have been working on my business plan for workshop I took on Artist Career Development. This is what I have for what they call an "Elevator Speech"...

I have played in the mud in one form or another for my entire life. Now I use mud in the form of clay to create sculpted ceramic figures. My figures engage the viewer by telling stories and provoking questions. I use simple gestures that communicate emotions and relationships. Inspired by the rich organic textures and colors found in nature I decorate the surfaces of each piece to complete a visual story that transcends words.

What is an "Elevator Speech"? It is a speech that will open up communication about your work. You must be able to do it quickly and engage the person you are speaking with to ask questions and instill a desire in them to see your work.
