The artist, Douglas Humble, commented on his work: [the piece] iis made of clay used to make sewer tile with vermiculite - the light spots in the clay that take up space because the piece is solid and the air space the vermiculite took helped to fire intact. The piece is unglazed. The clay took on that sheen when fired higher than for which it was calculated. Assembled from three cylinders.

Unsigned; no marks.

Clay used to make sewer tile with vermiculite; hand-formed; glazed brown.
