Title:  “Whitewater Rapids"


Year:  2020


Medium:  Ceramic / Cast Glass / Light


Description:  Sculpture


Style:  Contemporary / Abstract


Subject / Inspiration:  Water is the most powerful substance on the planet even when it’s not moving. Fast-moving water always has the potential for injury or death by drowning or hitting objects. Fatalities do occur; some 50 people die in whitewater accidents in the United States each year. Although this is an activity I would not participate in, I can’t help but admire the human spirit of all the paddlers who risk everything for the thrill of it all. 


Overall Dimensions:  12.25 x 13 x 4 in.


Technique:  High fired stoneware, wheel-thrown, altered, hand built, glazed and electric fired in an oxidation atmosphere. Cast glass.
