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.
