Re: Some new small sculptures

Cheese, thank you for your always enjoyable background info. I love "Juiced", funny but serious as well as something relevant through its contemporary connection to the archaic traditions. Reinterpretation of ever present themes in new and inventive ways is never getting old.

Or some other spirit held within? More self love at work here. Vessel and content melded in eternal embrace.

Or something like that....

Surely that helps it leave the "formal side" of ceramics. No?
I love the alterations you made on this piece, but in the light of what you wrote above, I don't see how the paint job on "Vessel" contributes to the concept, as it seems it has no other function then pure decorative? I think it is a great paint job, very sensuous but wonder if it was necessary at all...

Good point Rika. Probably one reason I am still sitting on it.

Re: Some new small sculptures

After reading Rika's comment I went back and looked at the piece. I visualized it without the design and the form is wonderful.
