A Skeleton Bowl from my Bones of the Tree series

 

This piece is my entry to the upcoming AAW traveling exhibition "Spirit of the Southwest" which starts in Albuquerque the last week of June.

 Here's my comment for the piece in my submission:

 

While I created this piece I was reminded of the painstaking efforts of an archeologist carefully removing the sedimentary material encasing a fossil. 

Our shared goal is to remove only extraneous material and thus reveal the essence of the partially hidden object.  In this case that object is a pot, perhaps a relic from some early inhabitants of the southwestern high desert.

 

 

I will be attending the annual AAW symposium in June and will have another  skeleton piece in the EOG auction, as well as a number of pieces on display (and for sale) in the Instant Gallery of the symposium.  I will also bring several small pieces (of a range of surface treatments) that will not be on display at the symposium so feel  free to contact me if you wish to see any of these pieces.


 

As always, email comments regarding this piece (or any other piece on the site) are welcome.

If you would like to be notified by email when this site's currently featured piece is updated, please email me.
