Doug Hendrickson and Lee Ferber created Bronze Vessel while they were working together at Drake University. Ferber threw a simple vessel on the potter’s wheel, from which Hendrickson created a wax model. The wax model was then altered to create an entirely new shape, which was cast in bronze. The archaic design and uneven patina of this piece evoke an ancient ceramic vessel.
