Anne Currier experiments with the look and feel of different shapes, and made the top section of this piece simply because it felt good in her hands. She crafted the sculpture from earthenware and fired it three times to create the gritty surface. The stonelike texture and simple forms conjure something much larger than this ceramic model, evoking finely chiseled architecture or the interlocking parts of a strange machine.
