Two bottle forms, the first one carved with a paw paw (papaya) leaf, the inspiration for the carving. the second one is waiting to be trimmed then... who knows what will happen. ;)

Because of this connection I am always interested in the lives and markings of Indigenous Peoples of the Caribbean
Here is one of the pieces I am working on tonight.
12" tall bottle form, thrown on the wheel and carved, incised and slipped.
Feel free to comment.

I am presently working on my final year exhibition pieces, which are vessels representing urns. The urns are cracked and broken In places and ash is spilling.
I am looking at the fact that we as a society have lost the blueprint and what is supposed to be progress is actually a loss of sensitivity to the fact that people are dying violently and most of them are our children. People are alive but not living, the home is not a sanctuary, but a morgue.
What I have discovered, is that it is not easy, after you work to learn to make something 'properly', to make it broken.
Should I make them smaller? Straighter?
Comments will really be appreciated right about now.
The bisque firing was a total success! We are on point. Here are just some of the pieces. Next... glaze firing
