Green Squirrel & 2nd Amendment Squirrel- Price Upon Request
These animal bottles are the subject of a ‘green army’ series derived from my work Making a Moravian Squirrel Bottle published in Ceramics In America 2009 co- authored with editor Robert Hunter. This project in reverse archeology examines the figural bottles made by the North Carolina Moravian Potters in the 18th century. The characteristic green glazed squirrels inspired my modern interpretation to address environmental issues of fossil fuel dependence and the cultural epidemic of gun violence in America. The “Animal Farm” twist as 21st century satire turns the tables between man and the natural world and brings the arcane originals whose purpose had been lost to time into a contemporary dialogue. 8”, $4,800.00 ea.
