About progress toward equality.

COUNTING

WAITING/WATCHING

KYLIXES

The kylix series are raised platform serving vessels that have attributes derived from ancient Greek, Mayan, and Chinese forms. Many can be mounted on the wall.

PILLOWS/SAUCERS/TOWERS

The “pillows” are lidded containers based on metates (Central American grinding stones) and Chinese sleeping pillows, though again with very different iconography and purpose. The “saucers” are based on forms I worked with in the 1970s and are loosely based on Chinese lanterns. The “Towers” are stacked forms, like totems, obelisques, or other messaging systems. These three concepts are, in one way or another, the formal basis of much of my current work.
