Hand-built stoneware.

Object Description
Free-form sculpture with two openings on top at either end, reminiscent of bunker windows. Above and to the left of the right window is a tubular form, mirrored by a longer conical form below and down the side of the left window. A porcelain slip was poured down the sides in a drip-like fashion. The work is unglazed and saggar fired with charcoal. The polychromatic colors and markings are characteristic of this style of firing.

Gift of the artist, 2004.
