There is an odd and arbitrary nature to the creation of objects. It could be argued that making new things from existing materials is absolutely irrelevant in the widest context. This grand mode of questioning occasionally occupies the mind at points in the artistic process. It might lend itself particularly to the ceramic practice that deals with the direct transformation of earth and rocks.

Justification or explanation could lie with the fact that for some reason I and other artists feel compelled to create, as a reaction to the stimulus of a passage through the world.

Even then, an experience that is entirely captivating to one individual will mean nothing to another. It can be a strange exercise.
