Lizard on Acorn Box
Created by Nancy Y. Adams
Wheel-thrown porcelain box with hand incised lid to simulate the look of an acorn. Hand modeled oak/acorn motifs on the lid with a hand sculpted lizard moving up the acorn lid. Airbrushed matte glazes fired to maturity in an oxidation kiln. Sculptural yet functional, this piece celebrates the strength and longevity of the oak/acorn along with the mischievous nature of the lizard. Signed and dated.
