Desert Born Vessels

Signed numbered series.

My explorations of vessels shifted to landscape inspired pieces in 1991. The Desert Born Vessels include cactus portraits, Van Gogh style incised skies, perforations and impressions of actual fossils and cactus skeletons. Earlier works incorporated thrown forms, brushed designs and impressions of jewelry using low fire clays and glazes. By 1995 the DB series became exclusively stoneware.

Shapes vary from: classical, tall classical, cylinder, gourd, and round.

The textured landscapes may include Van Gogh Skies, lizards, fossils, agave, Joshua tree, prickly pear or barrel cactus, organ pipe or saguaro.

  • Sizes range from 9" - 22" tall

  • May include lizard or fossil impressions
    and/or cut-out sections

  • Priced from $90 - $700.
