“Bowls For a Three-Stone Hearth”, multiple slipped native clay vessels, 2013
This set of hand-built vessels were inspired by Mexican cooking vessels found in archaeological excavations. The central pot sits on three legs to reference a hearth made of three stones on which the primary cooking vessel (usually round-bottomed) would sit. The companion vessels reference “shoe-shaped” small ceramics thought to have been designed to scoot under the sides of the large, round-bottomed vessel, perhaps to heat sauces or side dishes.
