ROBERT MILNES STUDIO
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.
The vase/kachina forms are based loosely on Southwestern US Native American forms though with very different iconography and meaning. These may function as vases as the ears come out revealing cylinders.
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.
Recent works available at the studio. These include sculptures that document the legal movement toward gender and racial equality in the United States and recognize the years involved and the effort that remains.
