Little Towers

I began working on some new ideas for a series of architectural pieces in the fall of 2020. I decided to use a low-fire white clay and bright low-fire glazes to switch things up. These first Little Towers pieces gave me the information I needed to inform larger pieces in this direction. Recalling research from a number of visits to the Yucatan years ago, this hybrid architectural form combines ancient cultural form with a contemporary interpretation. The colorful surfaces are highlighted with ceramic decals and gold luster. The pieces range in size from 1.5 to 4 inches in height. Working small is a great place to incubate new ideas. These pieces among others are available for purchase; price on request.
