Ceramics is mostly about vessels. Vessels to eat out of, drink out of, to carry in and store in, to decorate and to adorn. This piece is traditional in that it is a vase-like container but the decorative object it holds is a baby head which could be taken as a brand new vessel waiting to fill with life. I did a number of containers which had the baby head theme. There were decorative objects, baby head wine glasses, decorative items such as this, the vessel theme is almost unlimited.This piece is created from a molded face piece, a thrown body piece with added clay to embellish then it was finished in raku, and finally fiber and beads were added. This is one of several pieces done along these lines they follow very closely the same kind of things that I do with my collages and drawings. Juxtapostion of unusual images seemingly unrelated yet go together. This piece has a nice relic feel to it as though it was dug up from some strange civilization.
