Luce Center Label

Candelabra is a combination of thrown and hand-built pieces of stoneware that Julia Jackson fired together. At this point in her career, Jackson was influenced by shapes and forms in the human skeleton. The shape and distressed surface of this piece evokes a pelvic bone that has been unearthed after many centuries.
