Here's another piece, dating from about 1986 or '87, that explored my obsession with the broken pot. If I remember correctly, I had a dream--or at least a vision--of this vessel growing up from the earth in the fields behind our home at night. I was also obsessed with a particular shade of blue that seemed to emanate from the snowfields under moonlight.

Martha that means a lot--thanks. I am feeling a need to reconnect with that early work in hopes that it can help me find a way forward.
