Pottery Studio

Acrylic on canvas
18 x 14 in. / 46 x 36 cm

A woman and two boys work in a small pottery studio. She crouches beside the wheel, teaching one of the boys how to hold the clay while the other one prepares something at a side table. What is their relationship? Is she their mother? Working with clay is an engagement with the earth itself, and activity as old as human history. This small group, this family, are pictured together in a deeply human moment.
