"Like others in the Voulkos circle, she was interested in Japanese pottery and was impressed by a visit to Otis in 1958 by Kaneshige, a Living National Treasure (an honor awarded by the Japanese government), who lectured and gave a demonstration. The natural, organic shapes of Roosevelt's Candelabra, 1959, reveal the impact of the Japanese aesthetic on her work of that period."
